Frost Grape

Vitis Vulpina, known as the Frost Grape, becomes sweeter as the weather turns colder. Worked seamlessly from the top down in one piece, this sweet aran weight raglan sweater is warm and simple. The defined raglan seamlines, and the purl welt detail at the ribbed turtleneck, deep hem and cuffs, add just the right amount of style. A bit of shaping at the waist and back neck maintain a good fit, while at the same time making the chunky styling both cozy and modern.

Construction: Frost Grape begins at the top with the turtleneck worked in the round, then the body is shaped with raglan increases calculated at a rate specific to each size for proper armscye fit, and a few short rows to raise the back neck. Sleeves are put on hold while the body is shaped through the waist and hips to the hem, then the sleeves are worked to the cuffs; seamless construction is worked in the round throughout.
