My youngest son has had a fascination with fish since he was a toddler. I guess it was only a matter of time before I ended up trying to combine his love of fish with my love of knitting.
This color stranded fish design starts out as a top down raglan so there’s no seams to sew. The color rows are all worked in the round and carefully placed so they aren’t interrupted by any shaping.
Though this isn’t an exceptionally difficult sweater to knit, experience with knitting in the round and color stranding is helpful.
