FO – unnamed

Having grown tired of spending endless hours working on a sweater only to have it not fit well (or at all), I decided to design my own sweater from start to finish. I started with some basic measurements for a raglan yoke and an idea of the stitches I wanted to use and this was the result. I am pleased, but haven’t been able to wear it much what with the heat and all.

I thought about writing it up as a pattern for others to maybe knit up; and then I thought about how much work that would be. Inevitably it was my laziness that won out in that battle. I took some pictures though…

I used the little knots stitch on sleeves and back, top down raglan shaping, and short rows for the sleeve caps. Yarn is Malabringo’s Arroyo in coffee toffee (a yarn I wasn’t overly impressed with.) Ta-da!
