Retrogenser til gutta by Kristin Wiola Ødegård
Alan (boyfriend)
Needles & yarn
US 9 - 5.5 mm
Garnstudio DROPS Nepal
Per Tryving pt2

Very fun and quick knit.
I probably have to make another one later i my own colors.

Knitted on needle size 5.5 to get the correct size, on needle 6 the smallest size would be to big.

Some issues with the pattern, but as a quite experienced knitter it was no problem.

  • Not mentioned in book, but color in pt2 held double
  • Raglan description very confusing, use ordinary raglan on both sides of markers.
  • pattern chart several places show different colors than what seems to be used on the model, so I used picture to check and correct.
  • When dividing sleeves and body, the description was confusing and could not be used… do the normal way
  • When removing 55 st (each sleeve) and adding 10, the pattern would not match on both sides. Need an uneven number, so I added 1 = total 11 st.
  • Sleeves was 55 st + 10. According to the book this is 66. But this turned out fine for me since I added 11.
