Finally. A sweater is done. I had the yarn lying in the back of the closet. It was supposed to be a jacket which I started on years ago.
I had to unravel as it got way too big. And the yarn was stashed.
Until I saw this sweater. Totally lovely pattern for that yarn.
After I had washed it I could hardly believe it.
The yarn is extremely soft, light and yet so warm and nice to wear. I am in love.
Simply have to knit something else in it. And the yarn? It is the icelandic Lettlopi. If you love wool yarn you will love this yarn.
The sweater has a shaped hem originally. I dropped that as I think it will "stick out" in the front and will not keep me that warm.
So I simply knitted and knitted until I got the length I wanted adding stitches on the side.
The sweater has a perfect fit with the raglan shaping. A great pattern. I like the collar too - as I need to stay warm. This way it is scarf and sweater in one.
I normally knit with round needles. The sweater is knitted in cubics from KnitPro. I loved knitting with them. For thicker yarn and needles they were much better than the round needles. At least for my knitting.
