Start: 5th September 2008
Finish: 20th October 2008
Needles: 4.5 mm / 100 cm Addi Turbos
Yarn: Cascade 220, 100% Peruvian Highland Wool; colour 8886, dye lot 7414
Pattern: Joukahainen by Kristel Nyberg. Published in Finnish in the magazine Ulla 03/07. Pattern is available as an English translation as Ravelry download.
Modification: I shortened the body a bit because I don't like jerseys that hang down too low.
I can't begin to describe how much I LOVE this jersey now (give or take the collar which rides up in the front and is a bit tight). I've never worn this colour before....and I have to admit that I'm digging it.
I showed the pictures to Dr. D and he actually made a compliment that it looks great. ;-) Now, that's the best compliment I can ever get, eh?
I will certainly knit more Joukahainen in the future, since it's such a classic wear...but right now I'm in a sweater knitting fever. ;-)
Here are some more photos of me in my Joukahainen!
