Do you get the feeling that all I do is knit this WORK+SHELTER Lace Striped Sweater? Me too.
I just finished another one for my mom! This was a barter sweater – she made me a hand stamped table cloth I needed for a present, and she picked out this yarn, Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Merlin, for an adorable sweater for her!
She wanted her sweater longer, so I added an extra stripe before joining the sleeves for the yoke. So instead of ending with a St st stripe, I ended with a lace stripe, which meant I had to modify the sleeves to start with the lace stripe after the ribbing for the sleeves, and alternate my striping differently from there. It sounds confusing, but since this is my FIFTH sweater, it was a breeze.
This knit up really fast, as usual. Those size 9 needles and worsted weight yarn is a dream. And my mom loves it! Something tells me she’ll be wearing her new sweater a lot, which makes me very happy!
