Beautiful textures in the patterned bands of color team up with a warbled and silky look throughout the sweater. This is a sweater that you’ll want to make in several of your favorite color combinations (or even in a solid neutral to really show off the stitch pattern in the bands)!

Roads End is knit top down and in the round, in a completely seamless manner, with raglan sleeves and ribbing at cuffs, neck and hem. The patterned bands are fun and easy to work and provide infinite options to enhance any figure type along with the optional waist shaping and bit of flare at the hips.

Roads End (no apostrophe) is a small coastal community nestled up against Cascade Head on the Oregon Coast. The road literally stops where one is naturally compelled to marvel at miles of frothy surf pounding the sand. Down on the beach, tide pools expose the secrets of underwater life, sea caverns and passageways emerge at low tide, and massive, colorful layers of craggy rock jut out into the Pacific Ocean.
