A relaxed pullover full of of texture, Sangaree is perfect between seasons when you need a pretty layer over a shirt or tank top. Worsted weight cotton blend yarn, simple topdown raglan seamless construction and eye catching stitches combine in a versatile and high impact sweater.

Construction: Sangaree is knit seamlessly from the top down using raglan construction, in an alternating wide stripe pattern of lace and elongated stockinette. Stitches are cast on at the neckline, the front neck is shaped in a few rows, then the body is joined in the round and worked to the bottom of the armhole. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold while the lower body is worked without shaping to the narrow rib hem. Bracelet length sleeves are then continued in pattern to the ribbed cuffs. Stitches are picked up for the neckband and worked in matching rib.

Techniques & Skills Used: raglan construction, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, easy lace, purlwise cable CO, backwards loop CO, working in the round; stitch pattern is both written and charted and includes instructions for increasing in pattern.
