The Rhizome Pullover depicts subterranean stems and root structures with mesmerizing twisting colorwork. The rhythmic ribbons of color move over a neutral backdrop from bust to hem in this top-down raglan sweater; a solid yoke completes an uncomplicated look. The straight body and ribbing at the hem create a comfortable, classic silhouette.

NOTES

  • This pullover is worked in the round from the top down with raglan shaping. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
  • The chart is worked using the stranded method. Always pick up the background color over the pattern color and pick up the pattern color from under the background color; this will prevent tangling. Keep floats loose. For floats longer than five stitches, tack stranded yarn on wrong side of work. If necessary, use a larger needle for the charted sections to maintain gauge.
