1: READY SET RAGLAN OFFICIAL PREVIEW

The much anticipated Ready Set Raglan is here – we’re delighted to introduce you to our collection of eight raglan jumpers! Each pattern within this book includes customisable options, such as colour blocking and variations on the neckline and hem, so you can make the jumpers of your dreams! Ready Set Raglan follows on from our much-loved learn-to-knit book, Knit How, and includes helpful tutorials and top tips much like its predecessor. All the patterns within Ready Set Raglan are top-down knits and are made to a worsted-weight gauge, which makes it easy to yarn substitute if you wish!

One of the many special things about this book is that the wonderful knitting community played an important part in many aspects of its creation. We’re so grateful to all the sample knitters and test knitters who helped us shape the patterns, and to all of you who entered our competition to name the book. We concluded Knit How with a section titled ‘Ready, Set, Go’, so when McKenzie Kozman suggested Ready Set Raglan as a title, we took it as a positive sign and thought that her idea really captured the continuity between Knit How and Ready Set Raglan.

We’ve been overwhelmed (in a good way!) by your love for our collection of raglan jumpers on social media over the last few months – thank you, as always, for your support! Without further ado, here are the patterns! We’ve included many images of the same jumper here, to show you what we mean when we say that they’re customisable…
