I finished this Chic Pulli in January. I have been wearing it, and LOVE the yarn and feel of it. I am not happy with the length of the sleeves and the a waist that keeps rolling up. I have ripped out both sleeves and added another 3 inches. I am also going to rip out the waist and knit a few inches more in a much smaller needle. I don’t blame this on the pattern at all, I am pretty sure it was me trying to rush the project. It’s just not as comfortable as I’d like it. I wanted a big “boyfriend” sweater and I think once I clean up these two things, it will be perfect! Happy Knitting!
So, after reworking the neck, here it is. Finally, my sweater and me striking a pose in it.
LOL, I crack myself up! I do love this sweater so much. It is so soft and comfy. I may rip out the bottom still and adjust the sleeves, but I am still wearing it in the meantime. It doesn’t matter how many I knit, it still amazes me that I made a sweater out of two sticks and some string!
Another Christmas project to check off the list. I started this sweater for my Mom in early October and I finally finished it!
I am so excited. I am posting this now because she does know about it. I think I made her try it on at least 10 times while knitting it. It’s a simple top down raglan. I used the Top Down Raglan Sweater Generator by Knitting Fool and liked it. A few adjustments were made but only because I have trouble following directions. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft Worsted Weight per request of my Mom after seeing how Griff’s sweater wore after many washes. The needles used were US size 8 circulars and DPNs. I added seed stitch details on the neck, cuffs and bottom for a soft look. After soaking in lilac eucalan, all the stitches fell right into place. I know it’s acrylic, but it worked really well on this sweater, nevermind making it smell heavenly. I am so excited, and I can’t wait to see her model it!!!
What is still on your knitting Christmas list?
