Pattern: self-drawn based on Elfe transition stripes
Yarn: YarnArt Jeans 55% cotton 45%acrylic
Needle: 3 mm
Notes to self: I experimented with the raglan yoke. Instead of four points of decrease, I decided to decrease 10 stitches, evenly distributed, on every fourth row, eight times, and then 12 stitches on every 3rd row twice. This method creates a round rather than an angular yoke, the issue here is the visibility of the decreases, especially with this unforgiving cotton yarn. However, because the sweater is intended entirely for domestic wear, I didn't mind that so much. I'm curious how this method would work with wool, probably better. Might try it some day :)
Though I've photographed it outside, in front of the local supermarket, I really mean to wear it a lot and strictly at home. One of the issues of every woman, who makes her own clothes and is a home-stay mother or is working from home (I work from my home office) is the fact, that she spends a greater part of her time at home and gets to wear her new and fancy clothes more rarely. So this autumn I've decided to make a few items specifically to be worn at home, which for me means soft and preferably wool-free yarns. And I'll try to de-stash a little bit.
It's FO Friday and lot's of people are showing their finished objects at
