Designer: Sarah Solomon

Coombe is a top-down raglan sweater with a timeless texture. This version is written for a beautifully drapey pullover worked in either Daylights or Nightshades. Follow the ease guidelines to get either a relaxed classic fit or a more contemporary oversized fit. Choose from two styles of sleeves to make it your own; a graceful balloon sleeve with slightly gathered cuff, or a traditional tapered sleeve. Instructions are given to help you match our sample, but because this sweater is knit top-down, body and sleeve lengths are fully adjustable. Even the collar can be customized to suit you exactly.

NOTES

  • This sweater is worked in the round, from the top down, with raglan shaping.
  • Neckline is shaped with German short rows but another short row method may be substituted if you prefer.
  • For the first washing of this yarn we recommend using a mild dish soap like Dawn or Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile Soap. The fabric will soften and bloom dramatically. Be sure to block your swatch in the same manner as you will treat the garment to get an accurate gauge reading.
