My Super Simple Summer Sweater survived surgery and is DONE!
Pattern: Super Simple Summer Sweater by Joji Locatelli (Rav link)
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in the Jupiter colorway
Needles: US 8s, US 6s and US5s
Mods: I made this sweater longer in the body and sleeves. I also knit the back split hem longer than the front split hem.
My kitchener stitch is still slightly visible after blocking but not so much that a muggle will notice. I am VERY happy with the adjustments to this sweater. I feel like it suits my body type much better as a regular sweater and not as a tunic.
This took just over 6 1/2 skeins of the worsted yarn so that is roughly 1,380 yards of yarn. I had two different dye lots but using helical knitting I think they blended nicely. The average eye can see some flashing and striping but it looks intentional so I’m pleased.
Now I just need to plot my next sweater! Happy Knitting!!
Looks so nice on you! Great job on the repair.
