A very basic sweater. The chunky yarn and the horizontal stripes make it kind of...horizontally enhancing? But that's ok. Because clearly I am very happy about this sweater. Made with Nashua Handknits Equinox Stripe.

Moda Dea Ticker Tape jacket. Bascially the Anthropologie capelet with longer sleeves. Totally awesome


Thank you Smiley

These are so cute!  And I dont think the horizontal stripes are unflattering at all...they accentuate your hourglass figure.  I love the sleeve length too, way cute!

I for one love horizontal stripes, and yours are fantastic (and don't stretch you sideways ... i think it's because they vary in width)

I love these! How long did they take you?

Also, the stripes look fab on you- not "horizontally enhancing" at all.

I love the sweater! I too like horizontal stripes! Nothing wong with them! The colour variation/striping in the yarn is really pretty in fact. It looks very flattering on you. Smiley

I think the sweater looks really flattering, maybe not so much in person but it definetly looks good in the picture. Perhaps its just photogenic Wink.

Hi,
Have you given out the pattern for this sweater? I would love to make it for my girls and wondered if you are sharing the pattern.

I know there are two different raglan methods (one where you cast on the correct number of stitches for the front and back right at the beginning and then just increase for the sleeves, and one where you increase for the front, back and sleeves). Which one of these did you use? The fit is wonderful!

Also, I realize this is a really old thread, but I thought I'd give it a shot regardless.

I used the latter method. When I design raglans, I count the final number of stitches needed for each section (front, back and sleeves) and scale them back until I have an acceptable neck amount. I've tried the pattern generator and I just don't really like it.

Thanks for all the nice comments, I forgot I even posted these Tongue
