Round About Sweater


I just started this a few days ago. Doesn't look like much yet, but its coming along nicely. I have been wanting to try making a sweater and I wanted to make it with as few seams as possible. I found patterns online that were done in the round, but they started at the shoulders.....I wanted to start at the bottom. So I decided to try designing one myself. So far so good. I still have aways to go on the body but its moving along. I chose a pattern with a 2 count pattern stitch so increases and decreases would be easier when the time comes for that. And I am doing the pattern in blo so the sweater has some give to it and isn't stiff. I figure it will be for the coming Fall season so I have plenty of time to work on it. I know most people are thinking about spring wearables but I wanted to take my time with this project.

The yarn I am using is Simply Soft Shadows....I love the colorway. It will go with anything and anything will go with it. I will post more photos as the work progresses. I'm writing the pattern as I go along and hope to try getting it published. We'll see what happens.
