Day 20 in the Knit You Advent Calendar 2014: Vintage Highway
I'm certain that one can not have too many everyday sweaters - well, actually too many sweaters in general! This one has every feature I love for an everyday sweater: relaxed but flattering fit, 3/4-sleeves, longer backside and some garter stitch. And it's grey! Goes with everything and anything.
Vintage Highway is a classic raglan cardigan with small details and lovely relaxed fit. The cardigan pairs garter stitch with Stockinette stitch to make the construction stand out. Worked in lovely Primo Sport with a tight gauge, just to make sure the sweater can keep up with the everyday wear it highly deserves!
