Evenlight cover | The Knitting Vortex

Evenlight combines a textural check stitch on the body with repeating purl stripes on the sleeves. A wide raglan line and wider purl stripe spacing below the shoulders adds even more visual interest. The seamless raglan construction, casual fit and simple stitches make this a pullover with just enough interest both to knit and to wear.
