I’ve knit one full ball of yarn and I’m 6 rows away from completing the raglan.
I like the inch of 1×1 ribbing, and the tubular cast on. I also like how the sleeves are proportionally smaller on this version (which is good since that was the whole point of changing those increases).
But guess what? I’m frogging this one too.
The increases are just not working for me. I knew early on they were going to be a challenge. They’re not evenly increasing so the pretty double increases I used when starting this project aren’t going to cut it. I’ve tried out a bunch of different ones but they’re not working.
In the shower this morning (we all do our best thinking in the shower, right?) I had a Eureka moment. I have another idea for how to handle them. I should probably knit a swatch first, but well, we all know that’s 50-50. What’s a pattern without a little misery, right?
The silver lining with this is that I did get to work on other projects yesterday since I hadn’t solved my increase problem yet.
Tune in tomorrow for the details on how I spent my Sunday.
