Seriously. Hug me in this sweater. You won't let me go.
Pattern: Refined Raglan, Winter IK 2006
Yarn: Malabrigo, Burgundy
Mods: I modified the stitch count slightly due to gauge issues, and it is definitely a closer-fitting sweater than the one the model wears in the magazine. The other major modification is that I swapped out the funnel-neck specified in the pattern for a classic K2 P2 crew neck. This is an easy modification -- e-mail me if you want specifics on how I did it.
The most difficult thing about this sweater is photographing it. But trust me. It's perfect.
This is a sweater that any knitter would rate a 10. Gorgeous, super-soft yarn with rich incredible colors that knit up without incident into a simple yet distinct, absolutely perfectly fitting sweater.
