’Please note that this pattern is written for DK yarn doubled through out.’

A pullover with somewhat rustic & nostalgic feel. I was tempted to call it the ‘Ski Lodge sweater’.
The top-down structure allows an easy kinit.
Raglan lines are created with 4 knit sts and complimented with a doubled neck, and bold cuffs & bottom ribbing.

The full sweater is knit with doubled DK yarn, inviting endless color combinations. I used Saredo ‘RE re ly’ which was the perfect yarn for this project. It is a 100% cotton yarn that is eco-friendly and sustainable.
The yarn’s chain construction also creates a much lighter fabric than typical 100% cotton yarn, so I’m able to wear this sweater in California all year around.

Additional notes
* Please check the gauge after wet-blocking. When you knit doubled yarn, gauge will change after wet-blocking. For reference, my RE re ly yarn doubled gauge before wet-blocking was 15 sts and 21 rows.
Note: If you are planning to knit with 100% Superwash yarn, it will be opposite. - the gauge before wet-blocking will need to be tighter.
