What Oblique Looks Like From The Back
I finished the back this weekend! There was a brief moment where I thought about adding back neck shaping, but my gut was telling me I didn't have to for a raglan type of sweater, and sure enough, a few minutes later I remembered why - the sleeves of a raglan garment give you neck shaping because of the way the raglan works. Essentially, the tops of the sleeves become part of the neckline. So, once I knew I didn't have to mess around with back neck shaping, it was full steam ahead and I got the back all finished up (except for some ends that need weaving in)! I haven't cast on for the fronts yet, but I will do that later today if I have a chance.
As I believe I said Friday, this is a very well written pattern and the only change I've made is to slightly lengthen the sleeves which I have to do for most patterns. You guys know how much I like to change things around from the original pattern, so me knitting straight from the pattern as it's written is saying something.
