Woodbine Sweater

from Black Dog Fiber Studio
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Woodbine Sweater
Woodbine Sweater
Woodbine Sweater
Woodbine Sweater

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Stockinette stitch
  • Raglan shaping
  • Beginner lace

Pattern Description:

Woodbine is the answer to my fondest sweater dreams - easy to knit, all in one piece, and flattering on a pear-shaped body.

Specs: Top-down raglan with broken rib stitch on bodice, flowing into arched lace under bust and below elbow. Button loop closure incorporated into band. Blending these two patterns creates a form-hugging bodice that gently flares away from the body below the bust, creating a pleasing silhouette. The sleeves can be worked two ways; slightly flared or more traditional. (Both sleeve styles are shown in the photo)

Difficulty Rating: Intermediate.

Techniques used include increase/decrease, traveling stitch lace, double decrease, knitting in the round, fudging.


18 stitches & 24 rows = 4" in broken rib pattern

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Small (36"); Medium (40"); Large (44") XL (48"). There is 2" of ease included in the finished measurements. A note about scalability: Garment scale is based on the 8 stitch pattern repeat (*p3, k5*). Within reason, adding 8-stitch repeats to any section will increase it by 2"


  • US Size 7 circular needle (or size needed to achieve gauge), at least 24" long;
  • One needle 2 sizes larger for bind off
  • One circular needle one size smaller for sleeves

You Will Also Need:

  • Crochet hook for making button loops
  • Split ring and regular stitch markers
  • 3 buttons

Suggested yarn:

1450 yards of Worsted weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Elann Peruvian Highland Wool
