Sleeves of Lace

Knitted in beautiful tweed tussah silk. I absolutely love tussah silk – and in tweed? YES please   

This was an easy top-down raglan sweater i added some lace to the sleeves. Different kind of lace from the original patterns – which to me just looked too busy for this yarn.

Also the body had a bit less shape then the original pattern.

something else abt this knit

a Raglan top-down is the easiest sweater to knit – my opinion of course. But as i have shun even the idea of knitting Anything from parts (NEVER!!) i have found top-down to be 110% easier and better than bottom up. Better? No longer too short of a hem or too long/short sleeves 🙂
