Snug as a bug!

All stitched up and ready for the chilly winds we've had recently...


The West Side Raglan, pattern by Oat Couture, was a really straight forward and pleasant knit. I love the raglan/ squarish neckline as I look a right eejit in a high or polo neck style - curses for short necks;) I loved the Manos del Uruguay and will be looking for other projects to knit in this yarn again.


Modifications:
Body: knitted the body in the round to avoid as much seaming as possible and added 2" to body length
Sleeves: shortened the proposed length slightly as I hate it when the sleeve extends beyond my upper wrist.

Craftybernie, I followed your guidance and am ALL clickable this post ... you're a star! Thank you:)

That looks lovely. i have not used manos yarn but did do a So Called Scarf recently that uses it in the original pattern. That would be a nice one to try.

Love it, and adore the colours of the yarn.

I've never figured out how to do the clickable links thing! :)
