It blocked beautifully though, and it's warm but not too much, so perfect for this season.
I loosely based it on the Treeline Striped Cardigan but mostly I improvised. My original plan was to make a Roseling, but then I noticed how weird that collar was, and couldn't really figure out a way to make it work. So I decided on a bottom-up regular raglan sleeve construction, and incorporated the slipped stitch details along the sides of the body and the sleeve decreases.
A detailed explanation can be found on the Ravelry project page.
I love stripes, and this one is in my favorite color (red) so definitely going to get a lot of use.
