Rātā Sweater

by Hanging Rock Roost

 

A5 Printed Pattern Booklet

 

Made in such luxurious yarn as Harnie Hoolies Alsilca, Rātā will become your go-to jersey for those times when you need to add a little touch of class to your outfit. A romantic walk along the beach, followed by dinner at your favourite restaurant. Or paired with your best dressy trousers and a gorgeous pair of heels for a day at the office.

Rātā is worked using a variation of the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers (SusieM on Ravelry: http://ravelry.com/people/SusieM), from the neck to the hem, inside out (except for a bit around the shoulders to get you started)! Yes, I said inside out! Who wants to spend all that time purling when you can be knitting instead? The edges are i-cords and there are side-splits and cute little buttons at the bottom of the sleeves. The lace panels are simple to follow, worked either from a chart or the written instructions.
