I have been cranking out the rounds on my cable down raglan. I am up to the part where I need to pick a size. I measured my store bought sweaters – they seem to be about 36″ or 37″. I’m worried that the 38″ will be too big, and the 34″ will be too small. However, my gauge is off at 5st to the inch instead of 5.25 (fell victim to the “swatch on straight needles while the project is on circs” problem). So, doing the math, right now my sweater measures 36″ at the bust. I’m going to try it on tonight to see if it fits. If it does, that means I have to do more calculations to figure out the waist cabling. As it stands now, I can do 11 waist cables, but there would be no k2 ribbing between the cables. If the 36″ is too small, I can go up to almost 37″ by adding the k2 border around the diamond cable. Thoughts?
Here is the model picture:
