I love this pattern and started it yesterday. I had to frog a bit of it because I forgot to knit the buttonholes, so I only have a few inches done, but by tomorrow I should be done with the raglan increases. Pictures forthcoming!

PS: Thanks to ohmystars for this awesome pattern!

Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran....it was so nice that I couldn't pass it up.



Here's my progress so far, I'm at about 4 inches. My goal for today is to finish with the raglan increases, which is totally doable if the Vicodin I'm on doesn't knock me out too badly.

Ooh, I was wondering if someone would start one of thse - I've started my sweater and am almost ready to join gunder the arms. It's going to be a looooong time before it's cold enough here (in north central Texas) to actually wear it, but I though the pattern was so awesome, I couldn't wait to start it.

I've started this as well using some merino chunky like in the pattern.  I only had some odd colours so I'm having a go at some stripes, I'm not sure if I like it all that much yet, but it's a learning curve since I've never knitted with more than one colour before.  I'll try to post a progress pic after the weekend Smiley

I'm done with the increases, yay! (The vicodin knocked me out a bit more often than I thought it would, oops...)

Does anybody have a comprehensive pattern for the entire pattern? Or could post a rough tutorial? Id love to join, but was a bit confused by the original post.

i really love doing top down raglans. as often as possible, i change raglan patterns to top down. i hate weaving in ends. but a quick question. what kind of inc technique do you use. the only one i found so far is the yo inc. i lift the strand between the sts where the inc is going, put it on the needle and k through the back of the loop. anyway. i don't like it. it pulls at the sts next to it.

anyone help me?

Yeah, I'm using that increase method because it's the one specified in the pattern, and it's not pulling my stitches at all. Maybe ease up on your tension a bit?
