Randall

I bought the yarn from COLOURMART. It is Cashmere, in violet, and I used 3 x 2/36 weight. It is for me. It is photographed just after coming out of the tumble dryer. It was also machine washed first, twice.
I used a Silver Reed 830 to knit this. It's a 3.6mm pitch machine with 250 needles. The tension was number 5 and a gauge of 37 sts and 53 rows to 10cm.
This is a set in sleeve, using the half raglan type style that I like.

Hello Colin~ ~ ~Much common sense in your post to the group about saving your post with the instructions. This sweater is stunning! Can't say I'll ever be knitting anything with 37 sts. to 4 inches!! Good to have a machine.
