Nalgar Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmermann

Nalgar Sweater

This pattern is available from for $7.99.

Pattern description from Knitting Workshop: “We call him COUSIN NALGAR because, although technically a seamless From-The-Bottom-Up sweater, he behaves in a very odd way from the underarms on; He INcreases instead of DEcreases, and the sleeves are worked downwards. He’s rather a Fitz James II’s “NATURAL” (illegitimate) children were given surnames of Fitz -- from the French “fils”, meaning son -- followed by the Mother’s name., and his name represents RAGLAN spelled backwards.”

One of EZ’s “Seven Seamless Shoulder Shapings,” this sweater allows a lot of personal decision making. Yarn, gauge, size are all up to you! Genius.
