Flynnie Sweater, with a well-deserved captive audience: Top Down, In-The-Round, Wide-Weave Raglan Sweater
I absolutely love knitting sweaters from the top-down, in the round. Being able to try them on at any point, and make adjustments without having to rip out an entire sleeve, or sweater back makes the sweater building process so much more enjoyable.
Utilizing this piece primarily as a tunic I find it is a wonderful addition to my wardrobe, especially on those cold days. With the super chunky yarn, and large needles this is a quick, and fashionable knit.
A few years back I made a version of this sweater and completed it from the bottom up, in panels. After finishing it I realized that knitting top-down, and in the round would provide a very clean, polished, and more sophisticated sweater. Super snugly, and delightfully colored this sweater always brightens my mood, and I hope that it does the same for you, too!
Endlessly customizable, I have written a few notes throughout the pattern to help with adjustments and fitting. It’s a good idea to write down what you changed, so you can better review if it is working for you, or match your sleeves.
I welcome any and all feedback. Please feel free to email me at projecthallway AT gmail.com with thoughts or errata.
To anyone who purchases this sweater, I hope you enjoy making this it as much as I have.
