Rowan Atmosphere Sweater finally finished!
After 6 months of slow knitting, I finally finished this sweater! It's knit in Rowan Plaid yarn in colourway called Washed Pebbles, which is merino + acrylic + alpaca. It's bulky weight yarn and is really nice to knit with. The only trouble is it's a bit splitty, because it has 3 threads, each in a different colour. Anyway, Hubby simply loves it and thus agreed to model it for me and for the benefit of the forum ! I loved the pattern and i actually knit the XS size. It's my first serious cables project and i'm in love !
So here we go:
