Beginner-friendly knitting pattern for Easy Peasy Raglan Sweater.
Easy Peasy is Önling's new collection of knitted basics, in classic, Nordic design, with simple patterns written in a beginner-friendly language, without abbreviations. This is our take on an Easy Peasy sweater with raglan sleeves. The sweater can be varied indefinitely, e.g. with short sleeves, a longer body, light yarn, thick yarn, etc., and the pattern offers tips and details that allow you to adapt the sweater to be your very own and fit you perfectly. The fit of the sweater is ‘normal’, i.e. with a positive ease of approx. 5 cm / 2 inches. it is fairly short and has rather deep armholes and wide, short or long, sleeves ending in rib-stitch cuffs. The sweater is worked from the top down, increasing at the 4 raglan stitches. This makes it possible to try on the sweater as you go and make the perfect fit for you. The piece is then divided into body and sleeves, which are finished separately. In this kit, we knit in our bestseller yarn Önling No 1, merino wool, and angora – sustainably produced and super soft.
If this is your first knitting project, we have put together a beginners-box, with needles, stitch markers, a project bag, and yarn to get started on this sweater. You even get an extra knitting pattern, the Easy Peasy Basic sweater. See the knitting box and yarn kits in related products below.
