It’s amazing how much knitting you can get done on a train ride and while waiting around in a lounge.
I weaved in the ends this morning. It fits perfectly!
A few more detail shots:
I washed the sweater in the washing machine with cold water, and then popped it in the dryer for 15 minutes on the lowest heat setting. The stitches relaxed and the overall fabric got slightly fluffier — really nice.
This sweater is everything I had hoped. It’s comfy. It fits.
Pattern: Zipo from the All Seasons Cotton Collection
Yarn: All Seasons Cotton in Slash (color 161) — less than 13 balls
Mods: I loosely followed the pattern. I used the slip stitch ribbing but knit the whole sweater in the round. I wanted to go in between two sizes so I modified the neck and shoulders to fit. I also used the Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns for a modified drop shoulder. I wanted a comfy and cozy fit, but not overly sloppy.
I have 6+ balls of yarn leftover. Anyone interested in a trade or purchase? Retail is $51 for the 6 balls. I’ll sell the lot of $37 including shipping.
