I´m even more thrilled to update this post by telling you that this pattern is currently in the top 10 in Ravelry´s “hot right now”!! (28th of september). Quite happy about that…actually…..!!!! (well…very happy…indeed!!!)
This pattern is inspired by: Purl Bee´s ” Everyday Linen Raglan”
The yarn is Plucky Feet by the Plucky Knitter.
I was intrigued by the simplicity of this baseball pullover and since I was lucky enough to get hold of some of The Plucky Knitter yarn, this pattern seemed like the obvious choice. I wasn´t sure that the amount of wool would be enough for long arms. 3/4 arms would be okay, but I prefer them long, very long in fact. So, I found it safest to start at the top, and therefore had to reconstruct the whole pattern anyway. I also added a wider neckline, and constructed the longer-back a bit differently.
Yarn: «Plucky Feet» from Plucky Knitter; 90% merino and 10% nylon.
I ordered 4 skeins in the color “Medieval”, and used all 4 skeins (each 115 g), with a rest of 87 g.
Needles: Circular and DPN´s: size 3,5 mm (US 4)
Gauge: 22 st(s) x 36 rows = 10 x 10 cm (4 inch.)
Technique: top-down, raglan, seamless, longer in the back, positive ease.
One size only: European 38-40 (M)
Plucky Feet is a fingering weight yarn, and I have used a bigger size knitting needle than indicated with this yarn. Please check your gauge if you knit this pullover in another yarn.
The result is a very soft, yet “firm” pullover, which stays true to gauge and construction after washing.
