Transmute is a timeless raglan design. Worked from the top down, knitting this piece is a seamless pleasure with minimal finishing involved. Playful stripes add a touch of interest, while a hint of waist shaping skims the body.
It’s an easy and straight-forward pattern, perfectly suitable for adventurous beginners. Never made a sweater before? New to knitting a garment? A little afraid to get a great fit? Transmute is just your thing! The topdown construction allows to try the sweater on any time as you go to make sure you’re still on track with a good fit, while the stripes will keep you entertained during the process.
Transmute has been designed for Plucky Bello, the same gorgeous yarn I used for my Ashburn, but works great in other fingering weight yarns as well, like Primo Fingering or Plucky Feet. While I’m writing this blog post, Sarah is putting together some amazing color combinations for you to choose from. (Want to have a peek? Here and here.)
Do you like to get an idea of how this pattern will change its look (transmute!) into something entirely different? This is my dear friend Heli‘s sweater, all monochromous in black and white. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love that!
