1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Knitted Raglan Sweaters during THIS winter! on: November 09, 2005 08:14:07 AM
The grey sweater is wonderful. I'm just about to start one using that pattern and I'm so pleased you shared it.

I've found that wool will benefit from a bath with a) some hair conditioner then b) some vinegar in the rinse water. 

Heart_bats, what does the vinegar do?

Fantastic! I've just made the kitty hat, but now I know what I have to make next.

I used two and a bit balls of Debbie Bliss Merino chunky and 5mm double pointed needles. My gauge was off so a few bits needed working out, but after figuring out the right amount to cast on it mostly ended up being things like picking up a couple less stitches for the earflaps etc. On my first try I placed the kitty ears too far back on the head so I unravelled them and moved them two centimetres forward. It was only my second try working with double pointed needles and I found it much more comfortable working with the chunky yarn. My last try was on a sock with tiny 3mm needles - maybe now I've more practice I could go back to the sock! I'd been meaning to make this hat for ages and now I've found out how easy it is I'm sure I'll make many more as presents for friends.

The pattern can also be found online here: http://kittyville.com/knit/kitty_hat.html

rjn1798, you are right. To de-puff the sleeves you just do normal raglan increases instead of the extra increase rows 15, 17 & 19.

Here's my attempt at the minisweater in Rowan Summer Tweed (beautiful yarn).
