Rainier

Ships next business day

Rainier is worked in the round from the bottom up. The sleeves cuffs and hem begin with a long tail tubular cast on, and then a 1-by-1 ribbing is worked. Colorwork adorns the bottom of the sleeves and sweater body.

After the sleeves and body are complete, the pieces are joined to work the yoke. Raglan decreases shape the yoke, and then short rows are worked to raise the back neck. A colorwork pattern with integrated decreases is worked, and then a deep ribbed turtleneck finished with a tubular bind off completes the sweater. Pay careful attention to the size you are knitting when working the sleeve and yoke charts; different charts are given depending on the size to be worked.
