Sister's Sweater

ronhuber's picture

I made this sweater for my sister. I used Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight and 3.25 mm needles. The colour is Thistle and is much prettier than the pictures show. I knit it in the round from the bottom up and just cut the steek without securing it. First time I used an Asplund border and it turned out very well.

It's beautiful, and you are right in that Thistle is much prettier than your photograph shows. I'm sure she'll love it.

Ron, you've made a lovely job of the garment. I enjoy working with J&S wool even though it isn't the softest in the world. Such a good colour. The border is very effective, is it turned under and secured?
