Knitting makes me happy, computers keep me humble.

Top-Down Raglan in two colors of Koigu Kersti.

 I LOVE this yarn - Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe - 100% Merino Wool DK 50 g - 114 yards. This sweater took three skeins for a size two. Used a pattern from Mary Rich Goodwin's book - Children's Sweaters and Hats - Knitting Seamless Raglan Top Down.

I used one of the patterns for DK weight and made the regular raglan seams. My gauge was 6 stitches to the inch and 8 rows with US 6 needles. Since I was making it for a store sample, it didn't need to fit anyone. Loved how the two colors flowed together even though they were different variegateds.

Since I have a lot of Kersti in stock, I will DEFINITELY be using more of it - Yum :-)
