This sweater languished for about a year until I picked it up recently…and discovered I only had to sew the neckband on and weave in ends. Instant gratification! It is the Framed Pullover by Hannah Fettig of Knitbot. Simple, easy pattern, and would have been enjoyable knitting if it weren’t for the damn yarn I chose to knit it with. I quite thoroughly detested the yarn by the end….hence the sweater languishing for about a year.
As you can see in the photo, the ribbing was pretty useless after I blocked the sweater. I used RYC Bamboo Soft which I actually think I purchased at Stitches something like five years ago. I think it was primarily the colour that attracted me. It was a complete pain in the ass to work with. Splitty as hell, slippery (dropped stitches are NOT fun to fix in this yarn), it got into tangles practically just by looking at the yarn…and did I mention splitty? Also…I think I knit one sleeve slightly shorter than the other.
This yarn also grows. I swear it grew like two inches while I wore it around one day.
It’s wearable, anyways, but we’ll see how much I wear it. Ravelry project paget here.
