sweetgrass sweater

sweetgrass sweater

  • Created: july 20th, 2009

  • Pattern: my own, with the help of the incredible custom fit raglan sweater instructions. very similar to jenny's birthday sweater , but i wanted to take the time to tweak the neckline and collar this time.

  • Yarn: plymouth yarn "galway" in heather grey

  • Thoughts: i spent the last couple of months casually knitting this sweater, but last week was when i started knitting it non-stop until i finished. we've been getting a lot of good movies from the library and i haven't been feeling great, so i'd use that time at night to knit and relax - the best! last minute, i thought of adding the shawl collar so i did some research and after some trial and error, used the short row method to get the shaping on the collar that i wanted. i'm really pleased with the result and now can't wait to wear it in the fall!


  1. Hey that's really beautiful - well done! Hope you're feeling better.

  2. LOVE it! that color of yarn is beautiful! it looks so lovely on you and suits you to perfection (great with that dress). i love the old version too, just so you know!

  3. ah, this gives me inspiration...i had to rip out the shawl collar of the cardigan I'm making- didn't look quite right- but i'm determined to get it down! knitting in the evenings is the best, i agree. :)
    ps i love the eyelets along the raglan line, so nice!

  4. Hi,
    Just found your blog, and it's so lovely! I'm a knitter and crafter too, and I've added you to my changing list of blog faves. Hope you don't mind!
    All the best from London,
