Farmstand incorporates all the different techniques I like to use to make a seamless raglan cardigan that fits well, is incredibly simple to knit, and can utilize so many different kinds of yarn. Here I’ve alternated Cascade Eco Wool with Noro Kureyon but you could also use Noro Silk Garden, or even scraps of similar weight yarn.

Inspired by the stunning colors of a farmstand and photographed during the sheep and wool festival in Rhinebeck, NY this sweater is a fast, fun knit with a (only slightly scary) steek at the end.

This is a very VERBOSE pattern that has been rewritten and tech edited a second time for release to my Patreon patrons. I’m offering up steeking help (see pattern for details) for those among you who are nervous about cutting your knitting for the first time.
