Another January sweater

I’m well pleased with this one. It’s warm and comfy and fits just like a cosy sweater should, neither tight nor baggy, and plenty long to avoid ass cleavage. Here I demonstrate it’s comfort by doing the twist.

Pattern: Just a generic top-down raglan, my favorite mindless sweater

Yarn: Nashua Wooly Stripes, Rolling Thunder, 8 balls

What I Learned: If you’re not sure what collar you want because you’re not sure if you have enough yarn for the style you want (hoodie, in this case, and no, I didn’t), then use a provisional cast-on, so you don’t have to hand-pick out 70 stitches from a yarn that already tends to deteriorate with unnecessary wear.
