This classic raglan sweater pattern is named and designed for Karin Maag-Tanchak, the talented dyer and creative talent behind The Periwinkle Sheep.  My tribute to her is an elegant design with two neckline options.  The moss stitch rib is a classic texture perfect for showcasing yarns with outstanding colour, recovery and depth, such as Karin’s non-superwash merino worsted.  The kettle dyed effect is absolutely stunning.

Karin is one of THE cosiest and best fitting raglans you’ll ever find. She’s a classic ribbed raglan sweater pattern, knitted in non-superwash worsted yarn from The Periwinkle Sheep.

Every so often we run across a piece that we keep coming back to. Either it absolutely must be purchased, or we’ll regret it if we don’t. For me, the Karin sweater is one of those: A raglan that’s beautifully tailored, easy to knit, cosy to wear, and fits beautifully.

Whether your raglan nightmare is struggling to fit your shoulders, the neckline not sitting right, or the entire garment not holding its shape, Karin will wake you up from your bad dreams.

If you’ve been burned by badly fitting raglans uncomfortable at the neck, I’ve got you!  This seamed design incorporates tailoring and short row shaping to guarantee a good fit through the upper arm and shoulder.  Many raglan sweater patterns do not redistribute enough ease through the sleeve, and with Karin you can work exactly the short row shaping required for your unique shape.
