Notes

Maybe the quickest my finished project after it was published. Made it so fast I could not even remember the knitting process.

Modifications:

  1. Mirrored back chevron pattern in the front. Did not like flared front sides. Made it buttoned.
  2. Made it longer.
  3. Used self-striped Noro yarns to make my life easier. Played with color transitions to have thinner stripes on the top and thicker at the bottom.
  4. With some short rows made rounded neck in the front (7th picture).
  5. Very interesting raglan made my armholes slanting - lower in the front and shorter in the back side. So I made short rows gussets in the back side of armholes when picked up for a sleeve (4 short row turns, 8 rows total) to compensate the uneven armhole line. You can see it in the 9th picture.

Ran out of yarns, so made 3/4 sleeves. Now I can easily wear bracelets.
