Finished A Little Something
And here it is!
Size made: 34″
Yarn: NaturallyCaron.com Country in Silver Service (75% microdenier acrylic/25% merino wool), used 400 yds
Needle: size 9
Modifications: None, since it was to test the pattern… Wait, actually that’s a lie because it calls for casting on by knitting on. I tried, really I did, and was not successful. So I scrapped that and went for long tail cast on and then eliminated the purl set-up row. Also my lace is diagonally off by a stitch because of a correction that was made after I was too far in.
It doesn’t quite fit as intended. It should close over your chest a bit more, but even with some additional stretching, it just didn’t work that way for me. I do like it though, and will probably make another for myself in a larger size. This one is off to my teen-aged niece. Because every girl deserves a handmade item of clothing from a crazy “old” aunt, right?
I love the yarn. It’s so soft, has a nice sheen, and I like the drape. It’s kind of heavy… yet light. I really don’t know what I’m talking about when it come to yarn, so there you go! At $5 per skein this sweater cost me barely more than $10.
