More Ribbed Raglan!


I haven't lost my momentum on this! (And yes, I am eating and sleeping and doing laundry and all the other things around here that I do.) The secret is the huge gauge (4 stitches per inch and about 5 rows per inch). I've finished the sleeves (haven't sewn them up yet which is why they look strange and gorilla like) and have joined them to the body and now I'm working on the raglan decreases.

I will work the shaping directions for a crew neck (modified of course, because I almost never follow directions), working them as short rows to keep the stitches live, then I'll work the hood.

Want to know how I'll do the hood? I'm making it up as I go along. That's right - we'll be off-roading! I've looked at a couple of other patterns with hoods to see how they're done, including Bonne Marie's Twist (love this design, it's on my to do list). Of course the gauge is different so I figure I'll just design it as I go. After all, my head is right here with me and so is my neck and that's the part that hoods are for so how hard can it be?

This should be fun!

The arms do look funny but I'm confident you will finish. I got the thumb gusset finished on my mitten!! Really moving quickly, I am!

I have read in directions before to sew the arms to the sweater and do the seaming up later...is there a reason for this? I always seam them up first and then attach them because it makes more sense to me that way...

Are you SURE you have your head right there with you?? tee hee

As fast as you knit, I may send you Caleb's sweater. I've started the sleeves and that's all.
