My Five Day Fair Isle Raglan

I had fun knitting this top down raglan. No charts or pre-planning...just "composed" as I knit. The yarn is KnitPicks "Chroma" that I bought last year during their half price blow-out sale. The raglan yoke and body took three days to knit, each sleeve took one day....five days of fun!

Five days? I am amazed and speechless. Beautiful colorwork. Here I was proud of the two and a half months mine took (still proud to have completed it).

What yarn weight and gauge?

Worsted weight wool worked on a US#8 needle...4.5 sts/inch

Great work and only 5 days. I might be able to do it in 5 months.

I really like what you have done! Beautiful sweater and beautiful workmanship. Were the increases more difficult in a Fair Isle pattern?
