Now that Fall weather has arrived, I finally finished this short-sleeved sweater. It was started back in June, when short sleeves were much more appropriate, but I got distracted by other things. At least I had the chance to wear it once before it gets too chilly out!
This is another design from A Stitch in Time, Volume 2 which I love. Give me enough time and yarn and I just may have to make every single pattern contained therein!
For the most part, this is a very basic sweater except for the contrasting collar, cuffs, and flowers. The collar and cuffs are actually knit on the bias, which I was not expecting.
And underneath that collar is a ribbed neckline (again, not what I was anticipating, but it works!).
The original flowers turned out a little too sea-anemone for my taste. I was hoping for more of a posey of violets sort of look, so I just basted the ends back under the flower center. Crisis averted!
And you know what this means? Time to cast on something new!
