This will give you an idea




of my finsihed Cosmoplutoknits cardigan.

Here are the stats that real knit bloggers give:

Cosmoplutoknits Raglan Version 2.0

Yarn: Knitpicks Swish Superwash in Indigo Heather

Gauge: 4.5 sts / inch
(on 9s for me, but I knit loose)

Options taken: Optional shaping! For a more fitted look.

Choose seedstitch collar, cuffs and hem.

Buttons: FOUND at Mosaic in Desplaines

Buttons Placed by : Sonny my sweet buddy at the cleaners. (10 buttons.....3 dollars)

Note: I opted for skit in front and back of stitch for increases . The Make 1 increases left a hole when I tried them.

I may have to post another shot of this not buttoned up. I don't have a shirt to wear under it yet, for that look.

Please ignore the brown pants. Al wasn't supposed to get them in the shot. Imagine black okay? Oh and Imagine me 10 lbs thinner too! Ah what the heck.. I yams what I yams
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

Looks great!!! The fit looks wonderful, and it seems like the perfect sweater for the season.

Great pumpkin, too, by the way.

You and your sweater are both gorgeous! I love the color (with brown or black). I also love the seed stitch collar and cuffs.

The sweater looks great! Brown pants? What brown pants...and that must be the camera angle, cameras always add pounds- the evil things.

Seriously... the sweater does look great, and great on you! Just in time for the season... I like the pumpkin witch too.
