It's a fun and straightforward knit that we're sure you'll love to make and wear.

Free Bonus Pattern Included ⭐️ When you purchase the Port Townsend sweater, you automatically receive a matching hat pattern—no need to add it separately to your cart! It’s our gift to you. However, if you’re interested in just the hat pattern, you can purchase it here. This all-stockinette hat is a great stashbuster and comes in sizes from baby to adult. It's designed to perfectly match your Port Townsend sweater, adding a stylish handmade touch to your ensemble.

Sweater Construction: Port Townsend is worked from the top down, seamlessly beginning flat to shape a smooth v-neck before transitioning to raglan increases that complement the body's natural curves. 

The construction uses a compound raglan, meaning that the increase rate changes throughout the yoke for each size to achieve a great fit. After dividing for the sleeves, the garment is joined to be worked in the round, culminating in a 2x2 ribbing for a clean finish. 

The sleeves are adaptable, allowing for both short and long variations, pattern includes directions for both options. A folded ribbing collar provides a refined detail, picking up stitches along the neckline and decreasing at the center for a beautiful fit.

Fit: Designed with a comfortable and flattering fit in mind, Port Townsend is best worn with 4-8" of positive ease. This ensures the sweater drapes just right, offering both style and comfort. It's an excellent opportunity to measure your bust and choose a size that best fits your vision of ease and comfort.

Yarn: For yarn, we're all about diving into your stash and finding those solid DK yarns that spark joy. The pattern suggests 5 body stripes and 7 sleeve stripes for the long-sleeved version, but we're handing the creative reins to you: adjust the size and number of stripes as you see fit. Whether your aesthetic is understated elegance or a vibrant palette, Port Townsend serves as the perfect foundation for your creativity.

Yarn Description: We used West Wool Tandem DK for our Port Townsend samples. It hits the sweet spot of softness paired with the perfect structure, which makes it a joy both on the needles and worn. After blocking, its pure magic. The colors deserve a shout-out too - deep, vibrant, and with a spectrum of 52 colors to choose from!
