Even though I started my very first sweater over a year ago, a cable knit cardigan of all things, I only just finished my first one last week. It’s a Scandinavian design from Drops Design. I’m partial to their designs, it might have something to do with the fact that they’re free!
I have an embarrassingly large stash of New Zealand wool on cones for making my bags. One contains one of my favourite colours: violet, lavender, or whatever you want to call it. I HAD to see if I could make myself something out of it to wear.
Please excuse the narcissistic-like photos below, but they were taken for the purpose of posting on Ravelry where it’s the standard to be fun and creative with your photos. I appreciate it when knitters put personality into showing off their creations.
If I was to do this pattern again, I’d use a softer wool, and make the section before the gathered bottom edge a little longer, so it goes under my boobs!!
YARN: New Zealand wool, light sport weight doubled, purchased on Ebay
MODIFICATIONS: Hardly a modification, but I did a 3-needle bind off on the shoulders.
Glazed pottery buttons with a touch of violet in the middle…poifect!
