Forked: My Raglan Sweater

Yarn: Caron Simply Soft (USA) [100% Acrylic; 330 yds/302 m per 170g skein]; color: 9742 Grey Heather; 2 skeins

Care: machine wash cold, tumble dry low

Needles: US 5 / 3.75 mm circular, US 3 / 3.25 mm double-points

Pattern: Original

Date Begun: July 31, 2007

Date Completed: December 27, 2007

Modifications: Since I made up the pattern, there aren't really modifications per se. I did learn, however, that moss stitch is really stretchy and will make the hem flutter if not worked on smaller needles than the main fabric. Used US 3s on the last three rows of the sleeves, and the bind-off on the hem.
