Doocot Sweater Knit Pattern

Doocot Sweater Knit Pattern

Regular price $10.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $10.00 USD
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This sweater is worked from the top down, casting on a few stitches and increasing at an even rate to shape the front neckline, before joining the piece to be worked in the round. 

Raglan increases shape the upper body, the sleeve caps are divided and set aside, and the body is then worked in stockinette to just below the bust line. 

A rhythmic slipped stitch rib pattern then forms the lower body (which can be knitted cropped, as shown, or longer, if desired). 

The sleeves are worked top-down, with an easy fit and slightly gathered shape above the long slipped-stitch rib cuffs. Slipped-stitch rib also completes the neck edging (which is worked last).

Doocot Sweater review

I’ve really enjoyed knitting this sweater as it’s the first one I’ve ever knitted on circular needles. The instructions are easy to follow and the end product is super. Thank you.
