For some reason, I never actually, in all my years of knitting, have made a really simple, straight forward, top down raglan sweater in stockinette. I’ve started a million; never finished, frogged, and started something different, favoring sleeve details or fair isle motifs or cardigans.
Using Jane Richmond’s Ladies Classic Raglan Sweater, I decided to make myself a simple, but classic, pullover. Instead of my usually boring color palette, I opted to instead indulge in some Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the espadrilles colorway, which I’d been cooing over for awhile. Pink usually isn’t my thing; but this color, oh it couldn’t be resisted. For the stripes, its more tosh in the glazed pecan colorway.
I love the contrast in colors and its amazing how green the glazed pecan looks against the espadrilles colorway. More snaps when its finished. This is a really quick knit–a few days or so. All I have left is the sleeves.
More information on the few mods I made at my ravelry page, including no waist shaping (yay boxy sweaters!) and a stretchy bind off.
