This from the pattern "Raglan Rust" . In the Knitter's Magazine, designer Julie Farmer.
At my favorite LYS...we knit as a small group with guidance from a very good instructor.

Beautiful!! I have been enjoying using sock yarn for all my projects... socks, hats, mittens, gloves, cowls, etc. A sweater is next on my list. LOVE the colors in yours and the simplicity of the design. Great job!!

Wow! Thanx! You guys are fast!
This was done with two strands held together....I didn't save the labels but they were both variegated they didn't seem like they would go together...I trusted our instructor!

I would think that sock yarn would take longer to knit. I agree with the other comments because your sweater is beautiful and well made. You must be proud and very satisfied.

How do you adjust for the difference in yarn weight if patters calls for worsted weight? Love the sweater!

Holding two strands of sock yarn together equals worsted weight...I used size 5 and 7 needles.

Good to know. I plan on making a baby hoodie out of sock yarn and was wondering how to make it work since the pattern calls for worsted weight.i love the way yours turned out! Did the color way always match?
