FO Friday: Good Old Raglan

I finished my wee sweater for PB!! I won at yarn chicken and managed a sweater that also fits my tiny human. Behold the completed Good Old Raglan.

Pattern: Good Ole Raglan by Karen O’Hanlon Cohrt (Ravelry link)

Yarn: Hedgehog Fibers DK in Deep End and Treasure Goddess Yarns DK in Gunsmoke

Needles: US 6

Mods: I followed the pattern except for omitting the stripes and did my own color thing. I as well only knit the body for as long as I could go with running out of black yarn.

I’m just pleased as punch with now well this turned out and how cute it is next to my sweater. But, as I examined the photos I realized I BUTCHERED the raglan placement. The variegated yarn really hides the fact that raglan lines are askew to what you would normally expect. I’m sure this deviation was due to knitting while zooming in to a virtual yarn retreat. But I still managed a sweater shape and it fits PB. But my project photos DEFINITELY do not look like the rest of the finished objects on Ravelry.

I used up close to 433 yards of yarn to make size 5 child size. It’s a bit big on PB but that just means she has room to grow!

And the best of all? I even got her to put it on at the same time I was wearing my sweater and pose for photos. It was an evening, not the best light and we were both tired. But it’s a memory regardless. Maybe someday we will take ‘fancy’ photos but for now we are just going to be cozy in our sweaters!

Happy Knitting!!
