A Walk In The Park Jumper
Raglan sweater knit pattern
The “A Walk In The Park Jumper” is an easy top-down raglan sweater. It is worked in one piece. That means no sewing is needed at the end. Thanks to the top-down construction, you can check the length while knitting your sweater and adjust it easily to your needs.
The pattern for the “A Walk In The Park Jumper” is made for a plain jumper. To knit it as shown in the photo, you need a little more than half of the wool in colour A (yoke) and a little less than half for colour B (sleeves and body). But of course you can also plan the colour changes on your own, e.g. if you want to use up leftover wool.
A Walk In The Park Jumper the perfect knitting pattern, if you have already knitted sweaters flat and want to make your first steps with top-down raglan sweaters. It’s a super quick knit and you see results even after the first rows.
