It's All in the Math

So I am LOVING this pattern and the sweater it is creating. I am using the incredible, custom-fit raglan sweater pattern found at WoolWorks, and it is so much fun. I'm doing it with an unknown fibre yarn that I picked up for $5 a bag (454grams) at Z*llers (figuring if the pattern didn't work out no big loss), and it turns out I am loving the colour and the semi-striping happening with it. So far the shaping and the sizing seems to be working, and it is knitting up quickly. Until I could put the sleeves on waste yarn people were sort of puzzled by the whole thing, but once you could 'see' the sleeves it made more sense. I think it will have 2x2 ribbing at the sleeves and bottom, and a very simple neck edging. Definitely see more playing with this pattern in the future! Thanks to the equations being set out in the pattern (you just plug in the measurements required) the possibilities are endless. I do love math!

I love the colour So. Much. And the striping is working for me too.

I was expecting a dig at the math comment, Shan!
