Granite finished (top down raglan)

I started this back in September 2009 - a simple top down raglan based on the pattern by Diane Soucy (#991) - I mixed Plymouth Yarn Mushiushi and some mystery yarn from a cone that was donated at the MSKR 2009 - 2 stripes of one, 2 stripes of the second... and after a few mishaps (including our puppy chewing up my circ needles, putting the project on the back burner until I found the time to buy new ones) it's finally done! I love this one... it is simple, comfy and I'm really excited that it FITS!

My favorite thing about this pattern is it allows you to try it on as you go... if you've never tried a sweater, this pattern is a great one to try...

A smart looking sweater. I imagine you quite pleased with yourself. I really like the design. Top down sweaters are great as you say, because you can try them on as you go.

Nice job, Kyle. Looks great. I'll have to remember your recommendation when I get around to trying a sweater.

That looks really great!! I've done raglans and yoke sweaters but never from the top down. I've actually tried on the bottom up sweaters though but I imagine the top-down sweaters might be easier to try on? Congrats on this one!!

Really nice sweater, Kyle. The colors and textures compliment each other quite well. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
