I love knitting scarves and hats but I decided to venture further into the knitting world with my first sweater. I joined the KAL for a beginner’s raglan on Craftster, using Bernat Super Value, and here is what I have produced so far:

First sweater

I have actually gotten further than this but I haven’t gotten around to taking a photo. At the moment I’m on the second sleeve but I seem to have given up hope.

I increased WAY too much before reaching the armpits and that’s why it has such a crazy shape. I fear this sweater won’t be worn but it was at least good practice for me.

I love the colours but they might be a bit bright and it just doesn’t fit me properly.

And here is a photo of it when the body was about half-done and I was still happy with it:
