Fall is right around the corner, and sweater season is such an exciting moment for knitters! Maybe you’re looking for the perfect Rhinebeck sweater, a fun pattern to knit and wear this fall, or a stash busting project to make some room in that ever growing stash? Lineage Sweater is here to help!

The little balls of yarn left after a knitting project are little pieces of our knitting journeys which fill our hearts with dreams, our heads with mindfulness, and our bodies with warmth. These little leftover balls, too small to become their own projects, but too pretty to be thrown away, receive a new purpose with this stash busting pattern.

Lineage Sweater is the descendant of all your previous projects. It’s a raglan sweater worked in the round, seamlessly, from the top down. It can be made using only leftover yarns, or with mini skeins, or even with full skeins. It’s a fun sweater to knit and the result can be as colorful as you desire, as you can use any number of colors, from 2 to 1000!
