Level: beginner

Elegant and easy - an essential raglan pullover for young and old, men and women. Becky is fast to knit in Stockinette Stitch on # 9 needles, and is a terrific beginner’s project. This pattern is also a useful one for beginner knitting classes.

The directions are threaded with caveats, pointers and illustrated techniques to help all knitters enjoy the knitting process of this pullover. It can be knit in an array of yarns – chunky tweeds, alpaca (try a sport weight alpaca used double strand for a luxurious fabric), cottons, fiber blends or indulge in one of those fabulous hand-dyed yarns of many colors.

Sizes 34 through 50.
