Mount Royal

Mount Royal

C$9.00Price

The pattern for Mount Royal was created for a Knit City Montreal workshop that unfortunately had to be postponed to 2021 due to covid-19. It is a simple top-down raglan with a twisted rib detail at the bottom of the body and the sleeves. This pattern is a great basic!

 

A new and different pattern will be created for next year’s Knit City Montreal class and I hope you’ll enjoy this one until then.

 

If you’re new to knitting top-down sweaters in the round, this pattern would be a great introduction. For intermediate to experienced knitters, you’ll find that this pattern is a solid foundation. Knit it as is and knit again adding your own twist (stripes anyone?!) It’s definitely a pattern that could be knit again and again. I just might have another one on my needles myself! ;-))

 

I hope you enjoy!
