Ryuu-ko: Dragon Child

Yippee! The winter issue of Petite Purls is live and my first ever seamless, bottom-up, raglan sweater is part of it!

Ryuu-ko

The sweater is called "Ryuu-ko" which means "Dragon Child" in Japanese. The sweater is sized for 2T, 4, 6, 8, and 10 and can also be found on Ravelry.

I was surprised how quickly this sweater knit up and when I was finished, I was finished. No sewing seams. Ah, that was really nice and perfect for my impatient boy who couldn't wait to wear his dragon sweater. :D

I've also used Knit Picks' Wool of the Andes for the first time. It was a great yarn for this project and I can highly recommend it. The yarn cost came out to about $15 for a size 6. You can't beat that for a wool sweater!

For the first time in a long time, this pattern actually *spoke* to me. Sounds strange, I know, but seeing it actually brought feelings that have been swirling around my everyday life into clarity and I had to cast on immediately! I wrote a bit about it on my blog--moms of boys will understand.
