Knitting pattern for Delia sweater, a graphical and beautiful raglan sweater with a distinctive rib pattern and a boat neck for a good fit. A classic model that you can not live without in your wardrobe. Fancy zippers on the sides give it a feminine look. It is knitted in the delicate Isager Merilin in wool and linen together with the soft and thin Isager Alpaca 1, which is pure alpaca. This combined gives a light, beautiful and heathered structure and color scheme. If you choose two yarns that are more similar in color, the sweater color will become more solid.
