The quintessential wool pullover with a luxurious ribbed shawl collar never goes out of style. With iconic good looks in woolen-spun Shelter or Tones’ heathered hues, Brownstone effortlessly layers over workweek button-downs and weekend t-shirts alike. Seamless, bottom-up raglan construction and an easy, straight fit refined with short-row shaping make Brownstone an instant classic to knit and to wear — this updated version offers a wider range of sizes and instructions for adjusting sleeve and body length.

Construction

  • The sleeves are worked circularly from the cuff to the underarm then placed on hold. The body is worked circularly from the hem to the beginning of the neck opening, then worked back and forth in rows to the underarms. The sleeves and body are joined at the underarms, then the yoke is worked back and forth in a single piece while the raglan shoulders and neck are shaped.
  • The shawl collar is picked up from the neck edge and shaped with short rows, then the bottom edges are sewn in place.
  • Two sections of short row shaping are worked across the back. This results in the back being 2½”/6.5 cm longer than the front, improving the fit at back and chest.
  • Pattern includes instructions for adjusting body and sleeve lengths.
