It’s county fair time!

In other news, I am trying to decide
if the afghan needs to be longer how much longer the afghan needs to be.

In other knitting news, my friend Colleen came into this nearly completed sweater and the accompanying yarn. Tragically, the pattern was not included.
I volunteered to try to figure out the stitch pattern.
It seems to be a simple knit-purl combination, but I haven’t sat down with it to figure out the details. Any of you recognize it? I haven’t dug out my Barbara Walker yet to look for it. I started a swatch using a US#4 needle and it seems to be the right size, so I am guessing that the yarn, a luscious single-ply wooly tweed, is fingering weight.
The sweater is a v-neck cardigan. The body of the sweater, knit from the hem to the shoulders in one piece, is done except for a button band. One sleeve, knit in the round, is done to the armhole. The second sleeve is only about 3″ long.
Any of you recognize this sweater pattern? I have searched Ravelry using the following search terms:
- fingering- and sport-weight yarn
- US#3, 4 and 5 needle
…with no finds. (Oddly, there is no Ravelry option to select raglan vs. set-in vs. dolman sleeves. WTF?) It seems to me that it will be
difficult challenging to shape the sleeve cap without a pattern, although perhaps any standard fingering-weight set-in sleeve pattern would work. I suggested that she might want to frog the existing sleeves and instead knit them in stockinette; that would relieve us of trying to duplicate that stitch pattern.
Any help will be appreciated 🙂
