February Sweaters are sprouting out everywhere and I've been wanting to knit one for ages. Completely inspired by this charming little one where the lace is replaced by stocking stitch, I had to cast on for one.
This one is intended for charity. And the beautiful Fleece Artist wool is perfect for this project. Before I could post about the WIP earlier, the sweater is done! And I even have the perfect vintage buttons for it in my button stash.
I added another inch to the sleeves, which are just very slightly shaped, after I cast off for the body. At my husband's suggestion, I kept the garter stitch edges at the sleeves at different lengths from the body egding.
This is knitted entirely seamlessly, the sleeves are knitted in the round and the underarm stitches are picked up.
I've about 69g of the same yarn (worsted weight) leftover and would like to knit a matching something. Any suggestions?
And have you seen the adult versions like this cute stocking stitch one by Melissa and Pamela's fabulous February Lady Sweater (free pattern available too)? I can so see myself knitting one for myself too. One day.
Because something very special arrived from Japan today and I just can't wait to start swatching! I'll have to knit whatever on hand (which includes a Fluttered Sleeve Cardigan, ahem) every quickly before they become UFOs.
