Knitting this simple raglan from my fingering weight leftovers (held double throughout) was like walking down the memory lane of my knitting life! So fun and emotional … I wear it rs-out or ws-out according to my mood :)

Pick and sort your fingering weight leftovers and apply the suggested colorplay as you go.

The SIMPLE SOMETHING sweater is worked seamlessly in rounds, in one piece from the top-down in Stockinette Stitch with 2 threads of fingering weight yarn held together throughout. Beginning with the collar, the neck is then shaped by short rows and the yoke is worked by raglan increases down to the sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold, underarm stitches are cast on, and you continue to work the body to the bottom ribbing. After the body is completed, sleeve stitches are placed back onto the needles to work in Stockinette stitch in the round.
