Yarn is held double to add weight and structure to the ribbing before continuing on the main body and sleeves while holding just one end of the yarn. With an emphasis on strong hem lines and worked in pieces with simple raglan increases, this is a classic sweater that really goes the extra mile to ensure great fit and a flattering shape. Simple enough for beginners who wish to learn garment construction or a soothing knit for the more experienced knitter who wants a little comfort.
