Epic sweater take 5. Or is it 6?
So I was whizzing along ( as much as an epic sweater can really whiz...) and arrived at the correct number of stitches to have a 40" around sweater. Good, right? Wrong. What should have been 9 or 10 inches of length to achieve that width turned out to be more like 6 inches. Lets look...
That is the sweater I'm basing this whole affair on. Note the length of the raglan lines. Mine is the same (or nearly) width. Shit.
Lets take a closer look...
And now the reasons why this whole thing will be redone... again...
- Raglans are not supposed to have sleeves at 90 degree angles.
- K does not have arms at 90 degree angles.
- K is not built like a football player
- K is not planning on taking massive amounts of steroids which would cause him to look like a football player.
This yarn is just basic Sidar acrylic in a color I like to refer to as "Don't lose the Baby!" If you can't find your child in this then you shouldn't breed.
