The Capsule sweater no. 1 carries a classic hip-length look with a crew neck and neckline complemented by long, narrowing sleeves. Knitted top-down in knit stitches, raglan construction is used with increases M1L and M1R to shape the yoke. Rib stitch patterns decorate the cuffs, hem, and neckline. Its body can be easily extended if required; more yarns should be calculated for this purpose. With its narrow silhouette at the bottom, it adds a touch of elegance and femininity to any outfit!
