Nephew A's rollneck sweater, done and ready for his 2nd birthday in mid September. This one is made from KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Mist and Coal. Mist is a slightly bluish grey and Coal is true black. I knit the child's size 4 and used just over 2 skeins for the sleeves and I can't remember how much for the body, probably about 4 -5 skeins. Each piece was knit in the round up to the armpits, then knitted flat and sewn together along the raglan sleeves. The rollneck was knitted last. The pattern is Yankee Knitter Designs Roll Raglan.
I've had this pattern forever and this is the 4th time I've used it. A $2.95 well spent! Now, C would like one in his size in the same colors as this one. I'm thinking of making a more fitted and shaped solid version for me also, and 2 other color combinations for R (brown and red) and E(light and dark green). It's just such a great, basic pattern that looks good on everybody. No wonder J. Crew carried it for so long. I'm so behind the times.
