White Mountains is a simple yet unique raglan sweater. I borrowed the name from Lefka Ori, white mountains in Greece.
The sweater is worked from the top down seamlessly. The deep raglan and slightly oversized body contribute to its relaxed silhouette. The top of the sleeves form triangles, and the raglan lines flowing from the top vertex draw curves thanks to body and sleeve increases worked at different rates. The underside of sleeves also curves with decreases worked at short intervals in the upper portion. The lower portion is, on the contrary, knitted straight, which allows you to easily adjust the lengths. Anyway, take advantage of the top-down construction and try on your sweater in progress to adjust the body and sleeve lengths to your liking. The neckline comes with 4 variations, so that you can knit your personal sweater.
Designed to fit with 34 cm / 13.25“ of positive ease.
