Adding To Weekender

I’ve been quietly working away on my Weekender Sweater. And as of last night I hit the pattern mentioned 15 inches of body knitting. I’m using helical knitting and I’m pleased with how the skeins are working out color wise.

Now here’s the deal, I have a friend from college theater group who also knits and she knit the Weekender last year. She did not add any length and regrets it. I want a big cozy sweater and I feel like my waistline post two babies and how tall my torso is……that 15 inches is not sufficient. I need to add some undetermined amount of body length.

My project has been made even cheerier by the unicorn stitch marker ala Hannah of the Corner of Craft. I have knit maybe three to three and half inches of body since I last blogged about this. I’m going to move my marker and keep knitting the body.

I hope to actually be allowed to see my Mom soon and have her help me measure my torso. I’d like to get an idea for my length from underarm to torso so that I can do some maths to figure out an optimal body length using the pattern schematic. And also to make sure I’ll have enough yarn to make decent sleeves, lol.

Happy Knitting!!

  1. Because of the oversized fit of the Weekender I feel like mine falls further than the 15 inches. I’m 5’9″ and quite rotund post babies, and it is low enough on me. That being said, I’ve never been sad that a sweater is too long.

  2. Looks great! It is tricky to measure length on a sweater that has sleeves that begin below the usual underarm placement. I hope you get to see you mom soon, too.
