OK so I didn't finish it in in March and I didn't finish it in a month either. But I did finish it! I started this sweater for the March Sweater Madness - knit a sweater in a month challenge. I came close! I cast on March 16 and finished it up April 19th. (Thank you Ravelry - I never would have remembered the exact dates - what did we do without you!)
So - here is my "almost knit in a month" sweater!
I'm calling it my Lucky sweater!
Pattern: Raglan from the top down by Stephanie Japel a.k.a. Lucky!
Yarn: My handspun for the yoke and Elann Peruvian Highland Wool for the body in Peridot
Needles: Size US9 (I knit tight!)
Mods: I did my raglan increases with Yarn overs for some decorative details and added handspun trim on the cuffs and bottom of the sweater. I also did a turned hem on the bottom and cuffs.
Here is the handspun I used - I had about 100 yards of this awesome merino tencel from Cyberfiber:
It knit up like a dream and was just enough for the yoke...
with a bit left over for the cuffs and bottom hem...
It's also perfect for Project Spectrum!
