Notes

June 15th, 2014
I just casted on for this sweater, and I decided to make it a regular straight raglan neckline in the end. Although I usually prefer lower necklines (scoop neck or V-neck), it’s good to change things every now and then, right? And I figured that since the stitch pattern is a little busy, I’d probably be better off with a simpler, more linear shape. Can’t wait to see how it’ll turn out!

I plan on making this sweater relatively long, probably around 36 inches total, with a 3/4 sleeves. I’ll be alternating colors and stitch patterns every 3 or 4 inches, using linen stitch sections with plain stockinette sections.

I think I’ll make it a scoop neck, but I might change my mind (you never know!).

I swatched using a 3.25mm needle, but I’m not so sure about how it turned out, it seems very tight to me. I think I’ll try it on 3.5mm needles instead.
