Heritage Sweater Pattern. Preview and Giveaway

Textured Sweater Pattern

I am happy to say that Heritage sweater pattern will be published this Friday and I can finally share some preview shots with you. I hope you will enjoy them. Yarn was definitely my main inspiration – when I was swatching with Heritage skeins, I knew right away that I didn’t want to overcomplicate things, but knit something light, simple and with a nice drape.

But as usual I couldn’t not indulge in a little bit of texture and mixed basic classic stitches – 1×1 ribbing is gradually growing from the sides towards the center of the sweater, divided from the main stockinette stitch body with basic travelling cable.

The finishing is simple and straightforward – raw edges of the sleeves and more tailored hem and neckline.

My favorite details are the compound raglan shaping, that creates a natural line, and the central subtle chain that “divides” the sweater in half.
