Pattern: Kniterator Raglan by Tineke Corin
Yarn: Dreamcloud on Classic DK
Amount: 5 skeins (56g left of my 5th skein)
Needle: US 6 (4 mm)
Gauge: 4.5 stitches and 8 rows over 1 inch
Started: November 6, 2019
Completed: January 15, 2020
What I love about this pattern is that it is completely customizable! You get to input the measurements you want for your final garment and chosen gauge (with whatever yarn and needles you want)… and like magic, Kniterator churns out a pattern just for you! Including estimated yardage needed! Since I’m tall, this was such a nice change. I usually have to add a bit of length to the body and sleeves, so I’m never quite sure how much more yarn I’ll need. Plus, I have a pretty large head and I could even change the neck measurement! I know a lot of experienced knitters have learned how to adjust a pattern, but other that’s not something I’m super comfortable with yet. The fact that I was able to knit a sweater that fit exactly the way I like was just amazing!
Ravelry: I also have a Ravelry Project Page for this knit. However, many people (myself included) have had issues with the new Ravlery. It is known to cause eye strain, headaches, migraines, and seizures. Please be careful when proceeding to Ravelry!

Yesterday I cast on my test knit for @kniterator! I’m super excited to see how this one turns out… not only because using a Kniterator pattern means I’ll have a sweater completely customized to my size, but also because I dyed the yarn for this sweater! P.S. – these stitch markers (and many more) are available on my website (link in bio)! Plus, most of my stitch marker sets are ON SALE!

Hi, y’all! Happy Friday! I thought today would be a great day to share my finished test knit for @kniterator! I still can’t believe how well it ended up fitting! In case you don’t know, Kniterator is this super awesome site where you can put in the measurements that you want your sweater to be (ease included) and it calculates a pattern for you! I’ve never had a store-bought sweater fit me correctly, so knitting one that actually fits is kinda mind blowing. I highly recommend this pattern. I also wanted to share that I’m starting a newsletter! My newsletter will be the first place to hear about new products, upcoming events, special offers, and so much more! I have lots of awesome stuff planned for 2020, so you definitely want to sign up to hear about it all first. In fact, there might even be a little goodie just for signing up for the emails! 😉 Sign up with the link in my bio! #knittersofinstagram #knitting #kniterator #customfitsweater #instaknit #knitwear #testknittersofinstagram #testknit #knittersofig #knit #sweaterknitting #knittersoftheworld #finishedobject #finishedobjectfriday #igknitters #newsletter #makersofinstagram
