Shine Sweater is a light and airy sweater knitted with two strands of silk mohair. It is knitted from the top down with raglan increases and seed stitch knitting down the sleeves. The borders on the neck and sleeves are folded double and seed stitch sleeves are knitted while making raglan increases. The body is finished in an i-cord bind off or regular rib - this is your choice. Knit a swatch before you begin the pattern to ensure you have the correct gauge. The sweater has a positive ease of 10-15 cm.
The pattern is suitable for both new and advanced knitters. Techniques used: raglanincreases, knitted neckline (can also be sewn), seed stitches and i-cord bindoff (or regular rib).
