Percentages are your friend

I didn't start this sweater for this knitalong, but like most of my knitting, it's based on EZ's principles!

Gratuitous kitten shot

I used the percentage system and various EZ tips to make this raglan yoked pullover.
I love love love it! More pictures (and gushing) at the blog.

  • Beautiful, and it looks great on you. I love the yarn- checked the link, but they don't seem to have anymore. Bummer.

  • Adding my "amen" to the other comments. Nice interplay between the yarn and the pattern, and the fit is superb. You look terrific in your new red sweater!

    And have you discovered the Red Sweater KAL?

  • Michelle, although that yarn is made by the same company as handpaintedyarn.com, they only sell the worsted weight "malabrigo" yarn in stores. Google it and you'll find tons of retailers. It is SO soft and very affordable at around $12 for 200ish yards of the softest wool I have EVER felt!
    Thanks to all for the sweet comments!
