View Full Version : FO: spiral-pattern sweater
12-02-2008, 01:50 PM
This is a big, drapey sweater with a ruffle that forms a shawl collar. The back/body is knit round and round, so the colorways form a nice spiral. The ruffle is in seed stitch, the rest is all stockinette.

It looks great. I love the colorway you chose. It spiraled so nicely!

Thanks. The yarn the pattern called for had been discontinued. It had a longer color repeat, so the blocks of color were more pronounced--more blockish, bolder striping. But this yarn was a nice substitute--Patons Shetland Chunky in High Plains Variegated--and cost a lot less than the other yarn would have.

That turned out nice!! I love the elegant bell sleeve effect you gave it, and the ruffle all the way around. The yarn is great too!

Very pretty! I've been wanting to make this sweater too, but somehow I feel it would fit me better if I lost some of my extra weight :roflhard:
