FO: "Something Cocoa" Top-Down Raglan Cardigan
HI!

Finished my first ever 'top-down' raglan cardigan. The original pattern is called "Something Red". I found it in the Ravelry database, however, it is available off Ravelry for a PDF download fee of $5.50. Well worth the few bucks I paid! I'm making another one next week!

I made the long sleeves, with cuffs that mimic the skirt. The 2x2 ribbing is increased to K2P3 rib...then K2P4 rib to finish.




This is me, with my head cut off cuz my hair was a train wreck!



This is the model sweater.


This is my yarn!

There you go again, knitting up garments that could have been manufactured in Paris and putting us all to shame (LOL). I guess you know that means I think this is just as good, if not better, than the other things I have seen you display. Seriously, this is one really nice piece! Again your work is exemplary! Good job!

This is beautiful ArtLady! And again you are designing away. That yarn is wonderful if it produced all those stripes with no effort. Your button is so nice too.

Beautiful! I love Wendy's designs. I probably have close to ten bookmarked to knit up one day. Great job.
