Notes

FINISHED! Washed and blocked. If I had to do this one again I’d move the color changes in the yoke from the center back to one of the back raglan seams to avoid the ‘seam’ in the back. Otherwise great. The wide shoulders make it look much better on my husband than on me.

Feb. 2015 Almost done! Decided to put a nice bottom band of 3”, the last 1/4” in the red (i really like the result). Did a very tedious sewn bind off but it was worth it because it looks great and is nice and stretchy. Now, last 8” of the last sleeve!

Jan. 2015 Okay, on the way to the finish line! About 5 more inches of the body to knit and then the nemesis…the 2nd sleeve! Meanwhile, my husband and I both decided that the neck as is was too wide, so I went down to a size 3.5mm needle and picked up the neckline stitches, knit about 8 rows of 2x2 rib and then another 12 rows of stockinette to make a roll collar that cinches the neck a bit. It looks stiff right now but I know this yarn and it will soften up and drape very nicely once it’s washed and blocked. Need to hurry up and finish as it’s getting cold!

March 2014: Just got started on this one, couldn’t resist the stripes and I had the perfect colors in my stash ready to go. Maybe for once I’ll get one finished before next winter instead of 3 years from now!

My gauge is a bit larger than the pattern gauge (as ever) so I’m just knitting the smallest size with my larger gauge (18 st and 28 rows over 4” after washing and blocking)
