Kitted Raglan Sweater Pattern
This is a hand knit sweater pattern that I designed for use with my handspun Shetland wool. I designed the pattern using knitting software by Knitware.ca, This knitting pattern makes a raglan sleeve jumper and is knit on circular needles from the bottom up.
The jumper knit in a simple stocking stitch, but you can add your own special touches to it with a knitted motif such as the Sarah Lund jumper designs
