The sweater WIP is still going, and I’m enjoying it more than my first sweater experience. I love my Harvest cardigan, but so much stockinette is just not my favorite knitting. So this new one, the Textured Pullover, is a 10-row repeat that keeps me going with color changes and alternating stockinette rows with k1, p1 rows. I zipped right through the yoke, discovered my stitch counts were wrong because I’d put my BOR marker in the wrong place, frogged about 10 rows, knit them again, and was finally able to put the sleeve stitches on waste yarn.
Look at this pretty raglan sleeve detail!
I’m not convinced it’s coming out big enough to fit me, but if not, I’ve got a girl who might wear it.
Now I’ve just got about a foot of the body to knit, and it makes for perfect knitting while I watch the Olympics!
Oh wow, this looks really cool! I might have to add this sweater to my queue… stripes normally aren’t my thing (too many ends to sew in) but this one looks really cool.
Ah, but I’m carrying the purple up, so not that many extra ends to weave in! And the seam is under the arm so it’s not noticeable at all!
Ooh, even better!
Beautiful sweater. I love the grey with purple combo
Thanks, me too! I’m glad I chose to do it this way instead of the other way around.
