Wheat by Alina Schneider


This pattern is available for $7.00 USD buy it now

Wheat is a top-down sweater with the yoke shaped as the compound raglan, which creates a natural line running along the shoulder - something between the classic raglan and set-in sleeve.

For your convenience the yoke shaping is written out individually for each size in a concise manner that is easy to follow.

The body of a sweater is knit in basic stockinette stitch and the back is shaped with the help of short rows, which results in a slightly elongated shape at the back.

The hem is trimmed with the twisted i-cord that creates a nice texture contrast with the stockinette stitch body.

The main detail is the simple cable panel running along the sleeves. If you are new to cables, this will be the perfect project to learn – the cable twists are very simple and the instructions provided are both in visual chart and written form.


One more pattern file has been added - the instructions how to mix two of my patterns, Heritage and Wheat sweaters.
