Vaar is a classic sweater, but with extra space in the body and a low added raglan sleeve - a light, loose and unpretentious sweatshirt style. And even though the model is very plain, it has small subtleties:
Italian cast on
Edges knitted in twisted rib
A specially marked raglan that we know from machine knit. In English, the method is called “Full-fashioned Double decrease” (abbreviated FFDD). The method is described in the pattern - it’s easy, and it is great!
Raglan has moved from the normal place, between sleeve and body. Instead the decreases are placed in the sides of front and back.
The neckline is shaped using short rows.
The beginning of neckband is marked and stabilized with a few rows, knitted in a special way.
Italian bind off in neckband.
And despite the many features, it’s an easy knit.
