LADY VIOLET SWEATER by Twinset & Purl
This simple raglan top-down sweater is knit at loose gauge with an elegant lace design worked down the front raglan seams. The lace is the same as that on the Lady Violet socks. I loved it so much I’ve been wanting to put it on a sweater ever since…….hence the name!
The intended ease is 2 to 10 inches depending on your preference
Yarn: Botanical Yarn merino sock (4ply/fingering) (75% SW Merino/25% nylon) 425 m/464 yd per 100g in the Allium sensation colour way held together throughout with Botanical Yarn mohair silk (lace weight) (72% kid mohair/28% silk) 425 m/464 yd per 50g in the Ranunculus elegance colour way.
Please note: Meterage given above is for each of the yarns mentioned. Also, if you want to add length to the body, this will require more yarn.
Needles: 5 mm (US8) (ribbing) and 6 mm (US10) (main body) or needles required to match gauge. You will need 40 cm/16”, 60 cm/24” and 100cm/40” lengths and dpns or needles suitable for working small circumferences in the round.
Gauge: 15 sts & 22 rows to 10 cm/4 inches stocking stitch on 6 mm needles
