I finished this last July after about 6 months of work. It was amazing fun to knit, since it's such a great pattern and I used beautiful Italian cotton yarn.
Wonderful Work, maybe one day i will be as good as you.
The sweater is gorgeous; colour, design, and workmanship! What size needles were used to knit it?
The ribbing was on 3mm needles and the main body of it was on 3.75mm.
Don't worry, I'll be able to remember that when I see the progress pic up ;-)
This looks sooo great. And such a regular, even tension. Amazing work, Marc!
Fantastic work, though I don't think the photos do it justice.
MMario - I don't live in the 21st Century - but I sometimes play a character who does.
What a beautiful sweater, you've done a great job.
Absolutely beautiful! Is it a burgundy colour? I really like how the ribbed sleeves go with the cabling; they compliment each other nicely. How did you like working with cotton? Those Italians know how to produce some very fine yarns!
I didn't take the photos with very good lighting -- it's actually more of a chocolate brown than anything. I really enjoyed working with the cotton, but I found it less forgiving than other yarns when I made mistakes, so I guess it's a mixed bag.
