WAYFARER RAGLAN is the first design entry in the recently announced WAYFARER COLLECTION. This knitting pattern features a top-down, round-knit design, showcasing a classic raglan-style silhouette. Designed with simplicity in mind, this knitting pattern serves as an ideal project for knitters of all skill levels, especially those new to unspun yarn. Regardless of yarn choice, this knitting pattern is beginner-friendly and compatible with any aran to worsted weight yarn that meets the gauge.

The knitting begins with a long-tail cast-on at the neck, which is then shaped using German short rows while seamlessly incorporating raglan increases. The yoke is shaped with subtle, lifted increases, creating a refined, barely visible raglan seam. Once the sleeves and body are separated, they're worked in the timeless stockinette stitch to the desired length. Both cuffs and hem are neatly finished with a 1x1 rib and bound off in a corresponding manner.

The finished product is a minimalist yet versatile piece, poised to be a timeless addition to your wardrobe. Equally suitable for outdoor excursions and urban adventures, this piece of knitted beauty is designed to accompany you for years to come.


There are two samples showcased in the pattern, with slight neck and bottom ribbing length variations.

For an oversized fit, select a size 15-25 cm larger than your actual chest circumference. For a relaxed fit, opt for a size 10-15 cm larger than your actual chest circumference. The samples shown are size 3, offering a 19 cm positive ease.

You can choose from nine unisex sizes, with finished chest circumferences of:

90 (95) 103 (110) 120 (125) 135 (145) 155 cm.

Comprehensive measurements are included in the knitting pattern for optimal fit.
