Finished: Child's Raglan Pullover
Completed in 18 days to reach a KAL goal over at Stashalong
Modeled by the recipient, my DD #1 (age 5)
This is very loosely based on a pattern from the book Children's Sweaters and Hats: Knitting Seamless Raglans Top Down by Mary Rich Goodwin


Yarn: Plymouth Encore Worsted in Walnut (from Stash)
Yarn Amt: almost 600 yds (200 yds per ball) ;
Needles: Knit Picks Option - US 8 (5mm) for body and sleeves, US 7(4.5mm) for ribbing on sleeve cuffs, US 9(5.5mm) for bind off on all edges
Source: Great Balls of Yarn in South FL



Size: Child's Size 6 - 28" Chest


Modifications: 3x1 ribbing on the body to avoid too much pulling in below the waist; no Fair Isle as in the pattern; used the suggested short row yoke method to pull the back up slightly. Made the sleeve ribbing 3"; instead of 1"


More details and photos on my blog

Very nice. She looks so happy. I'm going to have to learn this short-row yoke thingy you speak of.

Thanks everyone!!

Hey Nikki

The pattern gives the option to add 4 short rows to the back and part of the sleeve sections of the sweater to raise this section up slightly. It definitely showed a difference in the fit on her, and looks to me like this is a great way to prevent the neckline from pulling outward to either side.
