Pattern 9886 - Special XL, Special XL Tweed

Sweater & Cardigan

We just adore the texture of these classic chunky knits with raglan sleeves. A lovely fitted design, the sweater has a suble roll neck while the round neck cardigan has a cute button fastening at the top making it ideal for layering. Both use rice stitch to create the eyecatching texture.
