swc is fini!


this is the unwashed and unblocked swc just off the needles tonite...2 weeks! i made a few adjustments to the pattern. the ragan seam is much shorter, i stopped just when the sides met so it would not be too sloppy on me. i started the cowl just below the arm hole as recomended by savannahchick so i could wear the swc sans cami...i don't do layers! the body is exactly as the pattern stated and didn't need shaping. for the cowl, i picked up fewer stitches down the front, only about 36, i think and i made the cowl a little narrower only 5 1/2 inches so it would fit me better and be a bit cooler, i only knit three rows of stockinette before i started the ribbing on the sleeves so they would be shorter and the ribbing is 2 1/2 inches not three. i'm happy with the fit of this sweater and can't wait to finish the fad classic!

This is one awesome SWC. I love it. How long were the raglans before you joined? I like the mods you made. I think I might be ready to join, but I'm unsure... Just curious.
