Sock Sweater, He Is Finished!
The pooling doesn't look so bad in the photos.
This is the sweater front.
And here is the sweater back.
To recap: Ann Budd's raglan from her Handy Book of Sweater Patterns in a 26" chest. This sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up.
The Yarn: Lion Magic Stripes. I got a bargain. The yarn for this sweater cost $3.98 (2 balls--100 grams each--at $1.99 each). The color is called Sea Blue Pattern.
I used size 3 and 4 (US) needles.
And for those keeping score, here's what was left. Thirty-eight grams.
So, 3-50 gram balls would not be enough. Two 100 gram balls would be, though I don't think there's enough left for matching socks.
It was fun, relatively mindless.
You might be able to get a preemie hat from the leftovers. Just think out cute a tiny baby would look in a hat knit from that yarn.
I think the sweater looks great, and what a good way to use up some sock yarn! Thanks for the idea!!Post a Comment
