Calliope is a raglan-style sweater knit in the round from the top down featuring expanding rib at the neckline, simple rib at the hem, and long, dramatic sleeve cuffs. The wide, circular neckline evokes a vintage sensibility and combines with the modern, boxy silhouette to create an updated classic that will easily fit into any wardrobe!

TOOLS

  • For neck ribbing: 16” circular needles: 4 mm (US 6) – or one size smaller than gauge needle.
  • Main gauge needles - for rest of sweater (including body, cuffs, and hem): 16”, 24”, and 32” circular needles: 4.5 mm (US 7) – or size needed to obtain gauge.
  • 4 stitch markers to indicate beginning of round, raglan increase points, and sleeve ribbing - it would be helpful if the first (BOR) marker looked different from the other three
  • Stitch holders or waste yarn to place sleeve stitches on hold
  • Tapestry needle to weave in ends

Note: The two smallest sizes may require 12” circular needles or double-pointed needles for the sleeves.
