This sweater is a classical raglan model that resembles sailors’ sweaters of the past, hence the name Duggari:
Dugga was a certain type of fishing boat used by Englishmen fishing around Iceland in the 16th century, the fishermen were called “Duggari”.
The sweater features a simple structural pattern in the yoke, and a high collar. It is worked from the neck down. You will be working back and forth in pattern while the front neck is shaped, then stitches are joined to work the rest of the sweater in the round. Finally stitches at the neck are picked up to work the collar.
