The Crosshatch pullover is a raglan sweater knitted seamlessly from the top down. The twisted stitch pattern on the body gives a texture with depth, and with its clean and sharp appearance and casual fit, this pullover will be a staple piece in your wardrobe!

The yoke is worked first, followed by a suggestion to work the sleeves before continuing working the body. This makes it easier to knit the sleeves since the sweater is not too heavy yet, and the body can then be worked as long as your yarn stock allows you to. Of course it’s possible to work the body before the sleeves as commonly done.

Sizes available: XS (S, M, L (XL, XXL, XXXL))
The Crosshatch pullover is designed with no ease over the bust. The body is straight from the bust down to the waist. Choose your size depending on your bust measurement.
