Dulaan sweater - random

Dulaan sweater - random

Yarn: Bernat Lana 100% merino worsted, two strands held together throughout. I had two skeins (198m/217yd; 100g/3.5oz each) of each color -- black, dark brown, camel, and white -- and used a bit over half.

Needles: KnitPicks Options US10.5

Pattern: Child's raglan from A Handy Book of Sweater Patterns by Ann Budd. I used the 34" pattern but it ended up to be 30". The stripe pattern was determined by a random number generator.

Mods: I used a different double decrease for the raglans. Slip 2 tog knitwise; knit 1, pass 2 slipped stitches over. It makes a line of slipped stitches up the raglan and no visible decreases. It also camouflaged the color changes that occurred immediately after the slipped stitches. And I realized after 2-3" of yoke that, at my row gauge, the yoke was gonna be w-a-y too tall, so I decreased every round instead of every other. It seemed to work; the sweater looks more or less proportional.
