A finished sweater for Kate!
This will go down in the annals of knitting history as not my best knit. The body was too short, but I fixed that. The sleeves? Something tells me that they're too short, too. I could graft additional length to them. Since I'm going to see the Kate-ster next week I can get a sense of how much length I should add if I were to add anything.
Kate's Stripey Sweater, the details:
Pattern: My version of the Child's Placket Neck Pullover (sans Placket)
Yarn: Some random acrylic/wool worsted weight that I picked up in Astoria. Think Wool-Ease and you wouldn't be far from the mark.
Needles: US 7s
What I would do differently next time: make the body and sleeves longer from the get-go.
Would I knit this pattern again? You bet! Despite the sizing weirdness (which I can easily fix) I love this pattern. Throw in a striping sequence, and I am one happy subway knitter.
