This is another Incredible Custom Fit Raglan (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/MoniDew/incredible-custom-fit-raglan)sweater - I have such great success improvising from that recipe! It's how I've been able to continue to improvise without a pattern so successfully. (many of you ask). I love the shocking chartreuse color! So cute on, too. Wore it to class yesterday and got tons of compliments.

What a great sweater. Beautiful lacing. And I totally admire your ability to improvise on something that big. I'm not nearly at that stage yet. Still working on my second sweater ever.

Wow, you're really cranking these one-of-a-kind beauties out left and right. What can I say? It's another stunner--in every way!

Great color and pattern combination. It makes spring seem almost possible here in the cold east. Enjoy wearing this lovely sweater.

My Rav notes are here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/MoniDew/incredible-custom-fit-raglan (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/MoniDew/incredible-custom-fit-raglan)

I used Longmeadow cotton microfiber (http://www.yarn.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/product.detail/categoryID/3DE2C30C-6D95-43DD-8AB5-B8DB265D6674/productID/43B108F7-7006-40C8-8E49-5004F4435543/) in the color "lettuce" on size 3 Addi turbos. (http://www.yarn.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/product.detail/categoryID/E68AB484-3B75-47A6-ADBF-A2A5424A3D98/productID/D2EC38AF-F219-426E-BFE5-5D3100E7F7F1/)
Thank you!!

Oh, I loved the yarn, by the way, and will be buying it again. I also bought in fuchsia, coral, and melon for other summer projects. Started another summer t-shirt style sweater in fuchsia already. You'll be getting a glimpse of that soon, I'm sure. LOL!

Thanks for the info. I guessed you were using small needles. I like top-down raglan style sweaters, too.

Thank you so much! Discovering the documentary called "Forks over Knives" on Netflix changed/saved my life forever! I highly recommend it!
