Pat's Knitting and Quilting
January 21, 2010
Did you think I had forgotten how to knit sweaters? Prior to 2004 (my entrance into knitting blogs and computer enhanced knitting), I had been mostly knitting sweaters - LOTS of sweaters with occasional hats/mittens thrown in - I seem to have pretty much dropped sweaters in lieu of socks over the past few years. I usually have a sweater on my needles, but it just sits in a corner forgotten most of the time. This simple raglan v-neck was started in March 2009 - It is the one I spilled a whole cup of coffee on in Virginia last year, without any lasting damage - It is a survivor!
I love top-down raglan construction worked in the round - so easy to get a good fit and very little finish work. This pullover fits to perfection and soft....oh so soft made from cotton and angora. Can you see the angora halo?
In the old days, I made complicated sweaters with cables/colorwork/lace, but realized that what I WEAR are simple plain sweaters - exactly like this one.
If you have comments or questions or want to contact me for any reason, just email or contact me on Ravelry . Thanks :)
