This is the worsted-weight version of Flying Geese, a top-down v-neck raglan lace sweater knit seamlessly, beginning with back neck and increasing to chest size. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold, and knitting continued down to hem. Directions are given for pullover version or cardigan version, in worsted weight yarn.
Sizes: Small (medium, large, XL 2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Chest measurements, depending on your gauge: 35” (40”, 45”, 50”, 55”, 60”, 65”). I suggest slightly negative ease because of the stretchiness of the lace, so choose size closest to actual chest measurement. Sweater will be slightly larger than this measurement, depending on whether you make a pullover or cardigan, and how much your yarn stretches with blocking.
This lace is really fun with long, color-changing yarns such as Silk Garden, but could also work in stripes or color gradient yarns, such as Jupiter Moon Cumulus Rainbow. Have fun with it!
Sport-weight version is here:
Standard lace charts are used; raglan sweater techniques, provisional cast-ons and try-as-you- go customization for length.
I look forward to see what you make!
