Raspy

Raspy

Pattern:  Kim Hargreaves, Rowan Denim People

Yarn:  8 balls Cotlin (Cotton/Linen blend) – Knitpicks.com

Needles:  #4 US Knitpick Options Circulars

Modifications:  It has been awhile since I finished this sweater so I’ll try and remember all the modifications.  I enjoy knitting in the round whenever I can, and considering this sweater was so simple, I decided to use circular knitting.  Instead of setting in the sleeves I used a chapter out of the Cobblestone experience and set aside stitches for the underarm, which I kitchener stitched to the body of the sweater.  I added a couple more waist decreases, omitted several bust increases, and lengthened the entire sweater. I chose not to do the boat neck because I really don’t like them.

Notes:  I’m so-so on this project.  I like it enough and I’m sure come winter, it will get some wear.  I like the fact that I used a yarn that can be machine washed and dried.  The dropped stitches make it look interesting and kind of trendy.  Overall it was a very simple pattern, even a beginner could turn this sweater into an “in the round” project.
