It took me about 5 days, but my sweater is knit! Yay! I haven’t seamed the sides in these pictures, because I wanted you to get a visual of how it was knit. Next time I make a sweater I will try to adjust the pattern so I can knit it in the round. I think it would be quicker and more even. Plus, no purling!
The lattice/lace work was a pain at first. I think I ripped it out 5 times. It looks a little uneven, but that could be something as simple as not having your tension the same each day. I made my sweater wider and longer than the pattern called for. I wanted it to be a loose sweater. The image from the pattern the sweater is so short, so I added 2 inches. I wish I would have made it 3, but what’s done is done.
Also, as you can tell from the pictures, the back lattice work is longer than the front. That is intentional. I didn’t want the lace to come down too low in the front, even though I will be wearing a tank top under this!
I’m pretty happy with it. I haven’t made pictures of me in it, but that will be next, so you can see the finished product.
