I am delighted to show you this cute sweater all finished up. Quick knit, this one!
It has raglan shaping–I’ve done this once before on Carol Feller’s Celtic Cables sweater–and I have to say: working on this sweater helped me understand raglan! I get it now and I totally want to knit up a plainish sweater jacket for myself, and may do so just in time for winter 🙂 I also want to experiment with other sweater styles that I have yet to try. This mini-sweater thing is great . . . for White Ted and me!
Pattern info: Purl Rabbit Raglan Sweater; my gauge with size 4 metal needles was close enough for a sweater of this size (bigger objects need more exactitude and care), so I knit according to the pattern. The only thing I changed was the raglan shaping: in the pattern, they call for a K2tog followed by a K1 and another K2tog. I went for a K2tog, K1, SSK to get the better angle on the shaping. The underarms are grafted (and quite well, I might add!)
Yarn info: Tanis Fiber Arts superwash DK merino from her Palette collection, which has since changed its color combos. Loved this jewel tone set!!
