Ranunculus Sweater

Ranunculus is a top down yoked sweater with lace and textured stitches.  It is a very popular knitting pattern with 20,000 plus projects within Ravelry.  The beauty of this pattern is you can use any yarn from a lace weight to a worsted weight.  You can also choose to do a wide or more narrow neckline and short or longer sleeves.  The lace weight version makes for a light and airy sweater where the worsted weight creates a more structured version.  You get to decide!  The designer has published many videos that go along with the pattern. You will learn 1 of 2 cast-ons for the neck you choose.  You will also get to learn German short rows.  

This knits up quickly and makes a lovely look that many people knit over and over with different yarn for differing effects. 

Please note: This is not a learn to knit class.  Students will have made one simple sweater.

Supplies: See pattern for yardage needed (Purchase pattern here).  If you wish to lengthen your sweater you should buy extra yarn.  


  1. US 10 for neck and body of sweater. Use a 16” circular if making narrower neckline. 32” should be adequate for the body of the sweater

  2. US 8 is used for the hem ribbing and sleeve trim. 

  3. You may need to adjust needle size to reach gauge. 

Notions: Crochet hook for narrow neckline cast-on. Stitch markers, waste yarn, scissors, tapestry needle. 

Other information/Homework: 

  1. Review the Ravelry projects for suggestions on yarns and modifications. 
  2. Before the first class, have your yarn wound.
  3. Knit a large gauge swatch in the round. Measure your gauge when swatch is done.  Block your swatch and measure gauge again.  Bring this information to the first class.
