Sahra is a relaxed everyday sweater that is your best friend on chilly days. High turtle neck is a cool style statement but also really warm and can be worn in many ways. Wrap it if you want or hide behind it. If you prefer a basic crew neck or a trendy funnel neck, instructions are given for those too.

Sahra gets its look from wide raglan seams that are imitated on the wide hem ribbing. There’re also pockets on the hem. Splitting the hem makes Sahra a modern garment and gives you opportunities to show your layering. Sleeves are nice and cozy, not too tight, so you can wear a blouse under it.

Sahra is knitted from the top down seamlessly holding 2 strands, wool and silk mohair, together. To get a perfect look, neckline stitches are casted on with a tubular method. Then you work the neckline and yoke and divide your work for body and sleeves. For the body you split the hem, and after that continue with the sleeves. Then all you need to do is to work the lining for the pockets and sew them.
