Finished up a new cardigan this weekend. I only ever made Fair Isle Vests as drop shoulder sweaters are very unflattering on me. However, I thought I would try to make a raglan sweater and it turned out satisfactorily. I chose three browns, three grays, and a natural white and rooted through many books. I was inspired by Sheila MacGregor, Sarah Don, Elizabeth Zimmermann, and Debbie Bliss. The wool is from Jamieson and Smith in Lerwick Shetland Islands and I used 3.5 mm needles instead of the usual 3.0 mm that I usually use for Fair Isle and I really like the drape of the material. I tried to figure out how to do the raglans in pattern but finally decided to centre the design in the back, on the sleeves, and on the front, and let the pattern do what it wanted to when I decreased and I am satisfied with it. I had a 9 stitch steek and as always just cut it up the middle stitch without securing anything. Will try one now with set-in sleeves. Have been toying with the idea of a patterned body and then plain sleeves in the base colour.
