Knitting Pattern in English for a comfortable sweater with a high collar, twisted ribbing, decorative raglan increases and a splitted hem. Available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL und 3XL.



The sweater is knitted top down with raglan increases, starting with the 1x1 twisted ribbing. To form the yoke, you make increases before and after the 7 RS (8 increases every 2nd round), until you have your desired number of sts on your knitting needles and the sleeves are separated from the body. Now, there are still some decorative increases for the body and in the end, front and back are finished separately for a splitted hem. The sleeves are knitted in twisted ribbing in the round too until you have reached your individual desired length – then you turn your

work to the wrong side and start knitting the folded hems of the sleeves for around 11.5 cm.

The fit of the sweater is due to the increases loose and oversized, the wide sleeves, which are turned back, are the highlight of the design.
