Do you sometimes admire beautiful buttons but have no idea where to use them? Vildmose has the answer!
The top down raglan sweater has a mock button placket at the front, so there is no fussing with buttonholes and you can sew on your beautiful buttons and show them to the world!
On top of that, this raglan is worked in plain stockinette and is perfect for variegated yarn. The scalloped edging adds a feminine touch and should be worked in a solid color.
I like to wear my sweaters over blouses in winter and that’s why Vildmose comes with 2 sleeve options (short and long sleeves).
Fun fact about the name: This sweater is named after the nature reserve Lille Vildmose in Denmark. I saw a documentary about that nature reserve once and somehow the name stuck with me. Coming up with a name is sometimes the most difficult thing about designing!
