Keswick

7.00

The body and sleeves of Keswick are worked flat in pieces. After blocking, the sweater is seamed, and stitches are picked up for the buttonband to be worked back and forth. When shaping the raglan decreases, make sure to keep the first and last two stitches in stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). When shaping the fronts at the neck and raglan, work all stitches in pattern whenever possible. In the case of having insufficient stitches for completing a cable twist, work these stitches in stockinette stitch. In order for the raglan and neck shaping to work out effectively and to get a proper fit, it is important both your stitch and row gauge match the gauge given in the pattern. You will begin working the front neck shaping prior to working the armhole shaping. Work the back first, and then count the number of rows on the back to help you determine the total number of front rows you need to work prior to beginning the neck shaping. Read through the full right and left front directions before beginning.
