This has been a huge achievement for me. I started it in … October sometime and it has taken up pretty much all of my ‘free’ evening time. I’m really pleased with it and am looking forward to A1 wearing his matching blue one at the same time!!! It’s definitely too long in the body (but my gauge was spot on so I think it was the pattern sizing) but maybe it will fit next year too?!
False start in the colour I bought when I was originally going to do this for A1
Quick progress at the start of the raglan shaping
Slower going once it was full width
Testing for size…
Started on the snow….
Thought I’d gone wrong but I hadn’t!
Going to be a bit long – ah well, maybe it’ll fit next year!
This one row of Vickel braid took about 90 minutes!!!
Onto a sleeve
Almost finished sleeve
One sleeve to go
Definitely a bit big but happy customer!!!
*It does still need blocking and buttons.
