ON THE NEEDLES - A Simple Raglan Cardi Sweater

Saturday evening, in addition to all the hub-bub preparation for Easter weekend, I began a new sweater. Yeah, I know... a bit insane. If you would like to make one also, the FREE pattern can be found on the Lyon Brand Yarn site. It is called: Simple Raglan Cardi. Below is what mine looked like by Saturday bedtime:
I have several more rows completed now. This sweater is made from the Top down. I usually begin at the hem, so this is a nice change. It is for my DD Lonna. I am making several changes to the pattern: Sleeves will be 3/4 length; Body will be to waist; Front Edge has small lace insert. A ribbed front will be added after-the-fact for buttons, buttonholes, etc.

Lyon Brand is also hosting a KAL for this sweater, so come join in the fun. All the scoop can be found HERE, as well as a link to the free pattern. A few have finished their sweaters already as they started in February. Some nice photos can be found on Ravelry.

That's it for now. I am off to round up some strings for tomorrow's Friendship Group Meeting. We plan to sew up a storm of blue fabric! Until next time. . .

Quilty hugs,
