Finished Raglan Sleeve Sweater

The best part of this sweater was the yarn. It has a great sheen, striping and uneven weight. Perfect for the size 11 circular needles I used.

Of course  this was a craft store brand yarn that I found on clearance that I'd imagine they won't be making anymore, typical. You'll notice in the top picture the end of the sleeve rolls due to the jersey stitch used. In the bottom picture it doesn't. To make the sleeve lay flat I ran one row of single crochet over the finished edge. This was great because it doesn't look like I stuck crochet at the end, it just looks like a neat end row.

Now I'm gonna have a homemade muffin made with sweet potato puree and very little sugar. To read an interesting article about muffins and their place in society go to the Summer Tomato and get educated.


  1. Beauteous!

  2. Beautiful sweater Karen, I love the colors. I think you and I have a lot in common you never seem to have your hands still.

    If you are coming to the Philly show I have some free tickets, you are welcome to one (they are good for a whole family) Let me know I will send one out.

  3. Dang! That is a great looking sweater! I love the way the yarn patterned! I feel like a slug! You are uber productive!
