Slip stitch patterns create interesting texture and add dimension to knitting, much like defined brush strokes do in painting. Delft, knit using Deluxe Worsted Superwash features all over slip stitch patterns on the body and sleeves, as well as lovely diamond twisted stitch pattern on the front. The raglan shaping used provides a great fit and polished appearance, so you’ll be just as happy wearing this timeless cardigan as you will be knitting it.

PATTERN NOTES This sweater is knit seamlessly from the bottom up. First the sleeves are knit in the round to the underarms and set aside, then the body is knit flat from the bottom up to the underarms. The body and sleeves are joined together at the underarm for raglan shaping. Stitches are picked up along the front and neckline to create the button band.
