|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Traditional, Classic, Casual|
What materials did you use? Elsebeth Lavold Cool Wool - very soft combination of cotton and wool (machine washable!) Sizes 10.5, 7 and 5 Denise Circular needles
What are you most proud of? That I was able to change a too loose neckline into a nice fitting collar.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you see a pattern you like, you can always use the stitch pattern using your own measurements and the worksheets to make your own. To avoid "holes" at the raglan seams, I used a M1R and M1L increase rather than a yarn-over. Also, don't be afraid to go several sizes of needle to do a snugger ribbing. Unless you want loose ribbing at the cuffs, collar and lower band, you'll be pleased with the results,
