Cashmere

Woman's cashmere set in sleeve sweater, size 36", tapered so that hem is 34". The colour is more wine than the picture shows. Tension is 37sts and 58 rows to 10cm. This has been washed and tumble dried on hot twice.
This is more representative of the colour. This sleeve head is the half raglan style I have mentioned before. It is now my standard sleeve head for a set in sleeve. It is easy to knit and fits really well. I have tried other more rounded sleeve heads and do not care for them. This gives a confortable, well fitted head and looks good too.
Close up of neck band to show how it fits to body. It is 7cm deep at front, 2 cm deep at back and 16 cm wide.

Hello Colin - really liked the look of your sleeve head and as most of my knits are on the GC for 'the dear one' I shall try to copy your idea. Nice one! Best wishes from Pauline

Colin,

You do such beautiful work! I think the sleeves look nicer too. I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for the tip!!
