FORM (fawrm)

  • noun: external appearance of a clearly defined area, as distinguished from color or material; configuration.
  • verb (used with object): to give form or shape to; shape; fashion.
  • verb (used without object): to be formed or produced; to make a particular form or arrangement.

This seamless, top-down, raglan pullover is the quintessential everyday sweater.

To begin with, the construction is impecable:

  • Uniquely constructed boat neck collar which is both fun to knit and lays beautifully along the neck edges,
  • Compound raglan sleeve results in the perfect armhole depth irrespective of size,
  • A-line body shaping with body darts rather than at side edges, crating a lovely drape.
  • And, the pattern includes 2 different body and sleeve lengths!

Then add the amazing Woolfolk FÅR, for a gorgeous, drape and feel!

In the eggplant version, I am wearing FORM with 4” of positive ease, as designed, but you can see that FORM is equally lovely with no ease, which is the case with the pale pink version that is one size smaller that the eggplant one! Either way, it is the perfect FORM for wearing every day!
