Oh, another red cabled sweater. Hey, I like what I like. This is a simple cotton sweater that I started for summer vacation knitting, um, a couple of years ago, then put down when it got cold and finished over Christmas. (I think it may be a tactical error to schedule summer vacation in August. If I started these sweaters in July they’d probably stand a better chance of getting finished before fall.)
This one sat neglected for so long the gauge of the second sleeve is actually slightly different. Y’all, it’s a bad sign when you outgrow your gauge before you finish a sweater. (It turned out fine though. Once blocked I can’t tell which sleeve is which.) I’m not sure I’d pick this pattern now and I’m not convinced it’s super flattering, but I like it anyway. I’m particularly enamoured with the cables along the raglan seams.
Specs: Cotton Raglan with a bit of fudging for gauge/size, knit in Gedifra Mayra, a now-discontinued DK weight cotton/nylon blend. Nice yarn except for all the damn knots.
