Rathbone pullover knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh


Some sweaters are a staple, working as well with a pencil skirt as they do with our favourite trousers. Rathbone is a classic a-line shape with a v-neck that is flattering and easy to wear. A strong flow through the garment with subtle texture details adds just a little something to the finished garment and makes it a simple but interesting project to knit. Worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, this is best worn with a little positive ease. When selecting a size, we recommend choosing one that allows for 0-2.5 in (0-6 cm) positive ease at bust. his pattern includes“work at the same time” instructions and requires you to be comfortable with reversing shaping in the neck and shoulder area.
