Ziggyzack is a top–down turtleneck raglan pullover, worked almost entirely in reverse stockinette stitch, with ribbed cluster diamond pattern on the body of the sweater and the sleeves. Charming little pockets with pocket linings in contrasting colour make this garment even more comfortable and practical to wear. Combination of reverse stockinette stitch and slipped stitch pattern makes this garment a perfect design to work with variegated yarn.

This pattern requires skills:
provisional CO, basic increases (M1L/M1R), slipping stitches, working in the round, working flat, following charts, picking up stitches (pocket), 3 needle BO (pocket).

Sizes available: XS (S, M, L) XL, 2XL
