Bore sweater is a raglan sweater with a high neck and extra-long twisted rib at body and sleeves. It is worked top down. The yoke is worked with raglan increases and short rows to shape the neckline. The increases are worked on the outside of a simple, yet detailed raglan sequence. Body and sleeves are worked in the round and finished with twisted rib, before they are cast off with double face and the Italian bind off method. No final sewing necessary.

Please check measurements and size guide first. The measurements are calculated according to the given gauge. Please knit a gauge swatch first, to make sure you have the correct needle size. Measure the gauge swatch after washing. Change the needle size, if necessary.
