4. Kinsan – striped and gender neutral in long or short sleeves
This pattern is in the new Moon and Turtle book! This pullover is worked in the round from the top down with raglan shaping. The back of the neck is shaped first by working back and forth, and then is joined in the round to create a shaped neckline. Different stripe patterns are given. Please choose the one you would like to use, or make your own. For stripe patterns with 4 rows or less between a colour change, loosely carry yarn down in back rather than breaking the yarn to help reduce the number of ends to weave in. It is also recommended to weave in ends as you go. Meterage / yardage will vary depending of stripe pattern. Different body lengths, sleeves lengths, and neck lengths are given. There is also an option of a contrasting colour neckband. Please read through pattern before beginning and choose the lengths you require / desire. It is recommended to choose a pattern size that gives you no more than 15cm / 6” of positive ease. Going with more ease might result in too much extra fabric at the underarms!
