After lots and lots and lots and lots of problems, I finished my #Rib Yoke Topper!
I can’t really believe it turned out so well! With the issues with the front shaping, and the issues with decreasing and the front inserts and the button holes, I thought it might be cursed.
The only other modification I made were to not add stitches to the neck pick up. I just picked up a stitch for every stitch I had at the back neck. It looked big enough! So I worked about 32 sts across the back.
I’m also going to seam the sleeve folds, because they are a bit floppy and not so cute. I like the sizing of the sleeves a lot, but they are meant to be folded up and held with the loop and button, but it’s just not working. I’ll seam it down and I’m sure that will do the trick.
I picked out some fun yellow striped fabric for the fabric covered buttons I used, and it looks fantastic with the dark gray tweed. I LOVE how the Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed knit up! It’s perfect for this big, cozy, fall sweater.
You can tell in these pictures I’m not very happy with this sweater. None of these pictures are all that great, and my face kinda says it all. I’m hoping I have a short memory because I think the sweater turned out beautifully, despite all the problems, and it super wearable this fall! But right now I’m just mad at it.
It better make it up to me by being super hot!
