from Helen's Handknits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Classic Cowl Raglan Pullover
Classic Cowl Raglan Pullover
Classic Cowl Raglan Pullover

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knitting skills
  • Kitchener stitch joining

Pattern Description:

This sweater is specifically designed for inflexible yarns such as cotton, linen or silk (I made it with a yarn that is a blend of these three fibers). The wide cowl neck eliminates problems with pulling a closer-fitting neckband over the head, and the twisted ribbing adds flexibility to the ribbing borders.

The sweater is worked completely in the round, so there are no seams (just a small join at the underarms).


11 sts = 2"

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 38"/40"/42" chest measurement


  • 500-600 g of inflexible yarn such as cotton, linen or silk
  • No. 2 and No. 4 dp and circular needles; No. 3 straight or DP needle (for binding off)
  • Stitch markers and stitch holders

You Will Also Need:

  • Yarn needle for working in ends
