This past weekend I got some decent knitting time sans kiddos thanks to the miracle of naps and play dates. I managed to slog through the rest of the raglan increases on my Autumn League Pullover and get separated for the sleeves.
I had one tiny hiccup where I dropped a stitch and didn’t notice for like 10 rounds. I steeled myself and then laddered down to the dropped stitched then worked both stitches back up. It was a tight squeeze but I managed to make it look decent by pulling on some of the surrounding stitches to even it a little bit.
I think my next step would be to find a shortie size 7 circular and start the sleeves so I don’t have to turn the full weight of the body while doing the sleeves. I also want to try three quarter length sleeves, but I’m not sure how they will look and feel with this oversized fit. I might develop this as I go. I mean the worst that can happen is that I rip back and start over right?
I wish I had thought of that with the sleeves, it’s so much faff spending what feels like half my knitting time spinning the body round to untwist it!
You’re making such good progress. I think I would go with a long sleeve on a sweater that is meant to be oversized like that- but just my opinion:)
It is looking great so far! I think 3/4 sleeves would look good with it, and good idea to do them first!
I need to try and top down sweater
