A sleekly unadorned raglan tunic is perfect for winter. Knit in Shelter with simple double-rib edges and a turtleneck, Roslyn will add warmth and minimalist style to your wardrobe. Waist shaping keeps the silhouette trim and circular construction means you’ll be wearing it in no time. The neckline is shaped with bound-off stitches and decreases. The turtleneck collar, worked separately, begins with a tubular cast-on and is joined to the neckline with a crocheted chain stitch—a technique borrowed from the machine knitting world that yields a durable, elastic, perfect finish. Try Roslyn in our darkest neutrals for easy chic.
- Approximately 940 (1055, 1195, 1305, 1460, 1575) yards of worsted weight wool yarn
- 18 stitches & 28 rounds = 4″ in stockinette stitch with Size A needle(s), after blocking
Note: Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge.
Size A (for Main Fabric)
- One each 24″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
- Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)
Size B (for Ribbing)
- One each 16″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of DPNs* two sizes smaller than Size A
- Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)
Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)
- One each 16″ and 32″ circular needles and one set of DPNs* one size smaller than Size B
- Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)
*32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).
Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
