Second Sweater Workshop Jersey - Cable

kiwiknitter's picture

Here is my newly finished jumper using "The Sweater Workshop" method.  It originally called for the twisted double braid only up the front but I decided to add the cable to the arms and then to do the yoke in 1x1 ribbing.  I decided to do a roll collar on it to compliment the yoke.  It is done 99% in the round and seamless.  It was fun to be creative with the pattern and to do what I wanted instead of slavishly following a commercial pattern.  It fits me perfectly and I'm happy to have made it up myself.  The colour is a rust-brown, very 1970's but a great colour on me and not easily found.

I don't want to sound like a commercial for this book, but if you're wanting to take your knitting to a new plane and can't figure out Elizabeth Zimmermann's formula, this is the book for you!

Excellent work,Jesse. The colour is just perfect, I wouldn't regard it as 70's. I have yet to do a project using the "Sweater Workshop" method. I have the book and have only flicked through it. I want to complete other WIP before starting something else!!!!

I did it in an 8 ply Patons wool.  Needle sizes - ribbing 3.25 mm, body 4 mm.  Sorry, I don't know the US sizing.  Thanks for the appreciation.  I enjoyed "doing it myself"!

Looks great Jesse, and I'm still on the sampler!  Which decrease are you using for the raglan sleaves?

Excellent work Jesse. Very impressed. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.
