Finished sweater
I finally finished the sweater I've been working on. I love how it turned out. I started with this pattern, but did it top down in the round. I had to do the front panel backwards (worked row 10 first). The yarn is KP's Shine Sport.

Shine sport is a DK/sport weight yarn..how did you adapt the pattern since it's for bulky? It came out beautiful!

Jan - The yarn in the pattern isn't actually bulky but worsted. But I have a book that tells how many stitches to cast on for the neck depending on gauge. Then you just do the raglan increases until the raglan lines meet under the arm. That's what's so great about top down in the round, you can try it on as you go to get a good fit.
