I designed and knit this pullover last month. Wool is Knit Picks "Palette", used US # 4 needles. Knit from bottom up...body and sleeves connected and finished with yoke. I love it when all the math works out right and the visualized design becomes reality!
Here is a picture of sweater. Did not attatch first time!
I designed and knit this sweater 30 years ago. I was exploring the Nordic tradition, so this was knit in the round with cut steeks for the sleeves. I added the red hem facings to add a secret dash of fun and pazazz! This was a "cropped" style which a big departure from the long and loose sweaters that I was making at that time. I wore this yesterday and received raves and compliments.
Here is my version of "wingspan" using 60 st instead of 90. Yarn is Crazy Zauberball, color 1702 ombre.
I have posted lots of pictures of my knitting on Facebook ,if you care to view.
As you can see, this is my passion!
Check out this website....very good and comprehensive for beginner knitters....
For those of you who knit magnificent lace shawls in wooley fibers(wool,alpaca,mohair,etc.) why not work in #10 crochet cotton or linen thread (available at WEBS.com) and create a round or square tablecloth? Your work can then be displayed and used on your own table and does not require a female to wear it! Also, cotton and linen are stronger and less fragile as lace.....heirlooms forever!
