On Monday, I told you about my plans to create my very first sweater from scratch. I’ve knit several sweaters from other designers’ patterns, but this is the first one that I’ve designed on my own. I’m really happy with the results so far.
Ha, please excuse my crappy expression. I’m really happy with how it’s turning out! I should note that although the yarn hue looks a bit orange in the above photo (at least on my screen), it’s more of a honey gold. The colorway is actually “Turmeric” from KnitPicks.
You’ll have to use your imagination a bit to “see” the final product, but I also made a handy little drawing to provide you with a little more insight.
The construction is fairly straightforward: top-down with raglan shaping. I tend to gravitate towards this type of construction because it allows you to try on the garment as you go to get the best fit possible. I am also in love with twisted rib, so that will be the only type of ribbing in the sweater. Everything gets knit in one piece except for the button bands. I hate finishing steps, so I tried to have as few as possible.
So, what do you think?
