Done and Done!

Not one FO but two!

04 front

Burrard fits just as I like it this time round. I’ve written all about the various elements before, so this is just pretty pictures. It was totally worth it to unravel and redo this one instead of giving it away. Look at the fresh, petal-like colour!

The older version (left, below) was quite tight and pulled up every time I wore it. I hated the way the cables were distorted, and it was also kind of useless since I couldn’t wear any layers inside. The new one (right, below) still fits perfectly because of all the shaping, but has plenty of ease for inner layers. And the length is correct for an outerwear sweater! Ravelled here.

And also, an Epistropheid, using leftovers from my Dusseldorf pullover. I’m a bit bummed, though, that I still have a quarter of a skein left. I hate hanging on to leftovers!

I was going to make a ginormous pompom, but that would have hidden the extremely pretty crown shaping, so there it is. I started this without a gauge swatch or anything, and it was a quick two-day knit, so am very pleased with how it worked out!

  1. way to go, fixing the sweater to fit you better! Now you’ll actually enjoy wearing it, which is totally how knits should be. I was just admiring your beautiful new header on your blog, and then saw the hat- I love it!! So gorgeous.

    1. Thanks Julie, I’m just too much of a product knitter to put up with an unwearable garment! And I’m totally in love with the kaleidoscopic effect on the crown of the hat too!
