I started this on 3/31 and finished today (12 days total), when I couldn’t find the yarn I needed for my next project. You can find the free pattern here
I used less than two skeins (170 grams to be exact) of South West Trading Company Bamboo…yarn I bought in Las Vegas last year.
I made the second size listed on the pattern, and it’s a great fit! I used sizes 3 and 2 needles instead of those recommended in the pattern. I never actually did a gauge swatch (bad girl, I know), so I felt like going up a bit would be fine.
I have to say that I am so pleased and surprised. Sure, I’ve made socks, baby hats, and other cute things. But sweaters have always scared me. Completing this project, with the success I achieved, has bolstered my self-confidence. I will definitely be more inclined to take on a more intricate “wearable” item in the future.
On to the pictures!
Thanks for looking!
