I am having fun playing with this new style, knitting up chunky raglan sleeved pullovers in the beautiful colors of autumn. You can see my photograph that I used for color inspiration. Its a perfect chilly winter day sweater to cuddle up in.
I knit this with a combination of local grown Latvian wool, kid mohair, cotton and silk. All the colors are hand blended during the knitting process. I hand sew the seams using scrap ends from my other sweaters leaving knot ends as a boho touch. Its part of my zero waste attempt. This sweater is PREWASHED on a wool cycle and then layed flat to dry, so go ahead and do the same.
*** Thats me in the photos, I am a very very tall size M US, L EU. I make the sleeves long enough for me, you can always push them up. The style will be tunic length for most.
width: 60cm (23.5")
