34058 Arlette Sweater with pockets (e-pattern)

Regular price $6.00

Skill Level: Intermediate Knitting

This easy-to-wear sweater is knitted in pieces, from the bottom edge up, in stocking stitch with patterned bands, short or long raglan sleeves and cutaway side pockets.

The back and front pieces are identical apart from the pockets.
A contrast colour is used for the pocket linings and bands but the sweater could also be made in a single colour if preferred.

The seaming is easy on this sweater as all the shaping is fashioned leaving a straight edge to seam.

This sweater requires average to intermediate knitting skills.
