Inspired by a photo series of a single pullover worn by people from all walks of life, One Sweater is a simple, raglan pullover for any body. This gender-inclusive design is available in 15 sizes and is knitted from the top-down. Our two length suggestions allow you to tailor your sweater to your own measurements as you try it on throughout the process. An accompanying video series walks you through every step of the pattern, making One Sweater a fantastic project for first-time sweater knitters. It felt only right to use Cumbria: the yarn we developed to celebrate the community we live in. This worsted weight yarn is available in a palette of saturated colours inspired by the lakes and hills around us. We feel a sense of kinship with every maker who works with our yarn and patterns and can’t wait to connect with those knitting their own One Sweater.
