Get ready to add a touch of texture to your wardrobe with Stonerose, a cozy and stylish raglan sweater that you’ll love to wear all season long. The textured raglan yoke adds interest and depth to the classic design, while the mock neck collar keeps you warm and snug. The wide ribbed hem hits just below the natural waist, making it easy to pair with any outfit - from wide leg pants to denim jackets.
The top-down construction of Stonerose makes it a breeze to knit. You’ll start with a provisional cast on for the mock neck collar, which is knit in a cozy 1x1 ribbing on US3 needles. From there, you’ll move on to the textured lace yoke, featuring increases and crossed stitches that border the raglan seams. The body of the sweater is knit on US5 needles, with a combination of knit and purl stitches that create a beautiful texture. Finally, the sleeves and sweater body are finished with 1x1 ribbing on US4 needles.
Stonerose is knit with 100% Merino DK Twist yarn by Life in the Long Grass, a soft and luxurious yarn that gives excellent stitch definition. However, any merino DK yarn with a smooth and firm hand would be ideal for this project. Choose a tonal solid to showcase the textured stitches and make Stonerose truly stand out.
Whether you’re dressing up or keeping it casual, Stonerose is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. The classic design with a touch of texture will keep you cozy and stylish all season long.
