The Chisholm Sweater
The Chisholm Sweater is named after the Chisholm Trail, where cattle were driven from Texas to Kansas railroads. All the garter stitch you see in the sweater are the 'trails'.
Made out of fingering weight yarn, this sweater is a slight twist on the basic raglan design. Simple lace increases are used to decorate the raglan increases, and the hems are not your usual rib pattern. There are waist shaping instructions included in the pattern as well.
This pattern is Easy-Intermediate in difficulty. Intermediate techniques and stitches used include: purled i-cord, picking up stitches, back-loop cast on, ktbl, k2tog, ssk, m1R, and m1L. All techniques are explained in the pattern, except for picking up stitches.
