…minus the buttons. I closed it with pins so excuse the front closure.
I know several people use Fridays as their day to post about finished things but I write about them when it happens.
I like the fit (see my Ravelry notes).
The color isn’t too bad either.
The little wave pattern is very nice. I don’t think my shoulders are this broad. I look like a linebacker!
Pattern: Tangerine Twist
Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted
Color: Peony Color #5606, Lot# 7595
Needles: US 4, 6, and 7
Size: Medium (39.5)
I used 7 balls of yarn but with shorter tales with casting on, I might have had enough with 6 balls of yarn. I ripped out my swatch and used it as I thought I was going to run out of yarn.
According to the pattern, I should only need 8 buttons for this size. Some how I ended up with 9 buttonholes.
Would I make this pattern again? Yes.
I need to figure out what I’m doing for buttons first.
I like it! The color is great and the pattern is very nice. You do not look like a linebacker.
Very pretty….looks nice on. Good job.
I’m sick with some sinus thing….work 1/2 day and came home. I’m off the next 2 days so hopefully I can recover…..what a waste of 2 days being sick!
I agree with Leah. Love the sweater. Did you change the sleeves from the original pattern?
