The Whidbey Sweater—designed for men, women, and children—blends comfortable compound raglan shaping, relaxing stockinette, and creative Whidbey weaving, keeping you entertained and stash-busting all season long.

 

The Whidbey Sweater’s foundation is a straightforward, well-fitting compound raglan, worked in DK in the round from the top down. Beginning with a folded collar, the yoke features increases at varying rates for a curved raglan line that’s both comfortable and flattering. After separating stitches at the yoke’s end, the body and sleeves are worked in the round in plain stockinette until your desired length, concluding with cozy ribbed hems.

 

Then the real fun begins. After blocking your sweater, use the Whidbey Weave technique to add as much woven texture as your heart desires. Experiment with colors and yarn weights to craft a one-of-a-kind sweater that highlights all your favorite hues, fibers, and yarns!
