Rathbone sweater pattern by Holli Yeoh | The Fibre Company

Rathbone

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 0-6 cm (0-2.5 in) positive ease at bust. This pattern includes “work at the same time” instructions and requires you to be comfortable with reversing shaping in the neck and shoulder area.

Published by The Fibre Co as part of their Fell Garth II collection. Some places call to you and you have to return again and again and some are so special that they beg you to stay and never leave. Fell Garth II is a collection of 19 pieces shot at our homestead, Fell Garth, in the stunning Lake District of Northern England. We invite you to join us in the Cumbrian Fells for some knitting pleasure from a host of talented designers ready to inspire with designs in 5 of our yarns.
