Hello!! I am finally ready for another test phase! I am almost done grading this pattern, and am sending it to my tech editor. The testing phase will begin once I get the pattern back from her. :o)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Paloma Tweed; for the 39" bust 8 skeins of the white was used, and 3 of the tan.
Needles: US 15 and 13 in 24" circulars and DPNs. Or size to get gauge.
Gauge: 11sts x 16rows = 4" x 4"
Rough sizes predicted: 30" (33", 36", 39")[42", 45", 48"] still grading, depends on feasibility of raglan shaping with these sizes. I hope to be able to do all of these!
This is a top-down raglan style sweater that is roughly tunic, or just shy of tunic length. I am wearing the 39" bust with about 2-3" of positive ease. Even with the positive ease, there is some shaping to help keep the style flattering! I, personally, wanted an oversized, comfy sweater, but I think this sweater would look great anywhere between -2 to +2 ease!
I am looking for 1-2 testers per size. The test will be run here! :o) Yarn substitutions are not a problem, as long as you can get gauge!
