New Pattern! ‘Maturin’ Sweater

I’ve just released a new pattern – ‘Maturin‘ – a slim-fitting, raglan sleeved, crew necked jumper / sweater for men. (Although I think it would look pretty good on women too – must try it on and take some pics!)

Knit in double knitting weight yarn and in the round from the bottom up to the armholes and then flat. To add a bit of interest the raglan seams are sewn inside out to make a feature of them. They’re also highlighted with a band of garter stitches each side of the seam.

The body is a little longer than men’s jumpers usually are to keep out the drafts and stop it from riding up.

I this designed this specifically for my husband who owns many raglan sleeved crew necks, but they are often too small in the shoulders or too short in the body for him. Most shop bought jumpers that fit him well on the shoulders tend to be too baggy in the body for his taste.

I think the fit looks modern without being super-skinny-tight.
