FO Friday: Autumn League Pullover

This FO feels like a LONG time coming. But my Autumn League Pullover is completed, washed and photos taken.

Pattern: Autumn League Pullover by Alexandra Tavel

Yarn: Lion Brand Heartland

Needles: US 6 and US 7

Mods: My sleeves are shorter than the pattern shows. I also knit a split hem at the bottom ribbing with the back being longer than the front.

I really am just “meh” about this sweater. I very much enjoyed the process and the ultimate look of the final garment. But I think the fabric is a little stiff so it doesn’t drape as nicely as I would have liked. And the yarn is 100% acrylic so its warm but doesn’t breathe well so it holds on to smells more than wool would.

But it fits my figure nicely and it took 1,091 yards or 4.4 skeins of yarn out of my stash that had been marinating since 2014! This will probably just be a kick around the house sweater or I might see if my sister likes it. Honestly, I’m just glad to have this off the needles so I can start knitting my next sweater!

Happy Knitting!!
