The New Sweater Is Emerging

The new sweater I am making that I bought form Staci at It feels like butter; so soft and firm enough to hold up the collar with only a small additive. I have just gotten to the part where the sleeves have been slipped off and the torso of the sweater. Now the increasing is finished and I will make it as long as I like, about 27" I think. Then the arms and last the zipper.

I hope you enjoy it.

Wow, really beautiful! Your knitting is so even and the yarn choice is fantastic!

I an increasingly drawn to knitwear where the stitch definition is left to be discovered by the viewer because the beautiful yarn creates its own definition and the knitters skill is revealed by movement, handsome tailoring and great fit.

Well done, Mark. Great choices made here.

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

Thanks guys. I'm getting anxious to wear it. I can't take credit for the yarn choice, I simply copied the designer's choice. I am enjoying making this simply because the yarn is so easy to work with...soft but consistent. It's easy to keep the tension even. To keep the ribbing nice and even, after doing the purl stitch, move the yarn to the back, then give the yarn a little tug and that keeps everything very even. The designer teaches this in her video at:
then go to about the 5:15 mark.

Thanks again!

Love the sweater, love the videos!
...I'm wondering if I might be able to convert it to a cardigan....

I don't see why you couldn't, just continue the i-cord all the way down the torso and then put in a longer zipper.
