Glenmore Aran

A relaxed oversized sweater in cropped and regular lengths featuring a simple but effective textured pattern. Basic stitches and seamless, top-down construction make it the perfect pattern for beginner sweater knitters. Glenmore is available for two different gauges: aran and bulky.

Glenmore is an easy top-down sweater with an oversized fit. The shoulders are worked in one piece and then divided for front and back. The upper front and back are each worked flat and then joined in the round at the underarm. The body is worked in the round, and directions are given for both cropped and regular lengths. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked top down in the round. The drop shoulder construction means that there is no sleeve cap shaping to worry about. The pattern is worked in a deceptively simple knit purl pattern – if you can knit ribbing you can knit this.
