Right now I am looking for test knitters for my Rowessa

This pullover has elegant raglan sleeves, ridged edges and colour work that is enhanced by texture. It’s easy to knit given that it’s worked completely in knit and purl stitches. The body and sleeves have dominant black garter stitch stripes with multicolour stockinette stripes that recede. This ensures that the bright colours are not overpowering. Knit stitch columns set against a purl stitch background achieve a gracefully contrasting texture in the fully black yoke.

Waist and crew neck shaping are added for a tailored fit. Together with the raglan sleeves this gives the sweater good structure and stability to always make it hang straight. The jumper is knitted in the round from the bottom up. This makes reading the charts easier and there is only a small seam under the armhole to sew up after the knitting is complete.

For your convenience, there are separate instructions in an attractive layout for each size (36, 38, 40, 42, 44 and 46). Don’t be daunted by the number of pages in the PDF-file. There are only 6 for each size, including the photos, and PDF-reader allows you to print only those you need. You may find my full descriptions easier to follow than the standard brief and cryptic ones.

The light knitted fabric in fingering weight wool will keep you comfortably warm. By choosing sock wool you will make an affordable, durable and machine-washable garment to live in.

For women who desire elegance in daily life.
