Sweater on the Diagonal
Our popular Sweater on the Diagonal has been rewritten, with easier instructions and diagrams! The unique design is a twist on a top-down raglan sweater.
This easy design is based on stripes of Stockinette and Garter Stitch and lacy rows. The kit is offered in two styles:
One is a mix of several different textured yarns. Changing the yarns will add more texture and excitement to the design.
The other is our gorgeous Violetta DK weight in variegated or semi-solids. To make it even better it is Superwash yarn for easier care.
Either kit will be a beautiful addition to your fall and winter wardrobe!
Don’t pass up this opportunity to knit this wonderful piece for yourself or someone else. This interesting shape is easy to knit. The hand painted yarn will not pool or zigzag because of the constant increases.
This is a great piece for intermediate or experienced knitters, and you will have fun with it when you see the “Design on the Diagonal” unfolding
This kit is offered in S/M, L, XL, 2XL, & 3XL (2XL & 3XL require longer shipping time)
