DESCRIPTION

Get cozy with a warm sweater with some nifty details, perfect for layering over a collared button-up shirt… or just lounging on the sofa.

Soothsayer is a casual chic top-down sweater with raglan sleeves and a scooped neckline. The sweater features a high-low hem shaped with short rows and set-in pockets hidden inside the reverse stockinette body.

To minimize purling, the majority of the sweater is worked in stockinette in the round, then turned inside out after it’s finished. Waist shaping gives this comfy, cozy sweater a subtle hourglass curve while gentle A-line increases ensure it also fits comfortably around the hips. The neckline, pocket details, and cuffs are worked in twisted rib.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology, giving only written instructions. The pattern includes a step-by-step photo tutorial for making welt pockets.
