Yarn: Shepherd and Shearer 2013 Remnants
Source: Juniper Moon Farm Website
Needles: 4mm, 4.5mm and 5mm circular and dpn's
Start: August 23 Finish: October 26, 2014
Modifications: Worked fewer picked up stitches around collar, used smaller needles than called for on ridged sections of front and back.
I love this sweet, swingy little sweater! The narrow sleeves and close fitting shoulders (made a bit more snug going down a needle size when working the garter ridged sections) keep its' generous a-line cut from swamping me. (I also knit the collar on fewer stitches than called for to keep it neat and trim.)
Devlan is trendy but I think still works well in this traditional, minimally processed, yarn.
As ever, the BT pattern is detailed and a pleasure to work with, easily yielding a well appointed garment. Specifically Devlan's features lie in its shaping. At no point in time are you ever not counting rows or working to a marker of some description - kind of a surprise in what looks, at first glance, like a straightforward stockinette sweater.
There's extra length across lower back edge...
Once again I worked the third size on a BT pattern...
It seems to be working for me and my figure! (Cue the Hallelujah Chorus!)
