You already know how much I love working with Patons Classic Wool so yarn choice was a no-brainer especially as I wanted this sweater to be a hard-working wardrobe staple ~ and seriously, don't you love this olive colorway? My sister, Esther, picked up 1,400 yards for me to knit the medium/large size of Tin Can Knits' Flax pullover, and I took only two weeks to knit it.
This is a well-written pattern and for anyone knitting their first top-down raglan pullover, I highly recommend it. The only modification that I made was not knitting the garter stitch panels down the sleeves ~ I'm not a big fan of this detail so omitted them.
Hubby loved getting this sweater from me but I'm going to be completely honest here ... it wasn't a complete success. I'll save that story for another post so stay tuned.
