here's a sweater i designed and just finished inspired by delia's and kim hargreaves designs  Cheesy

(click these to enlarge)

i used about 9 balls of debbie bliss merino chunky on a 5.5mm circular needle.
it's a simple top-down raglan, you can see the rather rudimentary pattern here! i plan to add a big shawl collar once i buy more yarn, to make it extra-snuggly.

more details on my blog, link in my sig Smiley hope you like!

Really nice, that. I like that you can wear it lots of ways. I bet the shawl collar will be fab.

Wait a minute, where's me jumper? On Ravelry of course.

wow! i am so impressed with your productivity...all of your sweaters are awesome!

after knitting many sweaters in other ways, i am newly enthralled with top-down raglans, and i want to design my own using a worsted-dk weight wool (about 21 sts/4 in).  how do you recommend figuring out the # of sts to cast on to make a neck similar to yours on the fairaisle hearts raglan?  did you just make an educated guess using gauge and neck size? did you use a # from a sweater or bottom-up pattern you already had?  everything else seems so easy for fit and size, etc. i am just stuck on this small thing!

wow - I love it!  Can I ask a really daft  question ?  Grin  When you say 9 balls of Debbie Bliss Merino, do you mean 9 x 50g balls?  I've got some small cones of DB merino chunky (got cheap at a mill) and was just wondering if I might have enough to do this (although, might have to be stripy!!).
