Minette Pullover

The Minette Pullover is a top-down, seamless in-the-round hybrid raglan pullover sweater with a simple eyelet lace ribbing, a textured welt at the natural waist, and a choice of short or long sleeves.

The Minette Pullover and its mate the Minette Cardigan both feature a simple-to-work hybrid raglan construction: instead of working the same number of raglan increases for sleeve and bust, which often leads to too-wide sleeves and saggy baggy armholes by the time the number of stitches required for the bust are reached, the knitter increases the width of the body for a number of rows before beginning the sleeve increases. This unusual shaping results in a closer, more comfortable and more flattering fit than most knitters can achieve using a traditional raglan pattern.

Designed to be worn with 0-3” positive ease, the Minette Pullover fits a wide range of sizes, from a 27.75” to a 58” bust. It also includes some instructions on customizing the fit, as well as instructions for your choice of short or long sleeves. The Minette Pullover can be worn alone or as a twinset with the Minette Cardigan.

Also available as a print pattern through Mountain Colors.
