FO: My First Top Down Raglan
Posted by Amber on December 8, 2007
The weather may be frightful, but I was wearing a very warm sweater!
Pattern: A top down raglan generator
Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Worsted (not really worsted)
Needles: Addi turbo, size 5
Gauge: 5.75 st/inch
Sure, it’s a little itchy – this was my first knit with alpaca. But it isn’t so bad with a long sleeve shirt underneath. I’ve been thinking that I was going to have to unravel the sleeves and reknit because they seemed too big and floppy, but with a shirt underneath it was pretty perfect.
Some detail shots:
(A silly dance, in celebration of all that Lorna’s right behind me…)
The neck could have benefited from some short rows or something.
I have to roll up the sleeves just a bit.
After Jess took the 4th photo of my chest, well… I started feeling a little silly.
