They FIT!

I've posted photos here of both sweaters before, but please humor me. These are new photos of the recipients of the sweaters, wearing them. I have to rejoice over the fact that they fit.

The first is a saddle-shoulder knit with lopi:



The second is a seamless yoke sweater, knit top down with Jaggerspun merino:

I expected this one to be too short. I can't express how happy I am to not be adding more length in that solid blue stockinette. The plainness of it nearly drove me mad.

Happy holidays!

  • Beautiful sweaters! The recipients look happy in them. And I like the cropped length on the Bohus.

  • Both are beautiful, and the second one leaves me breathless. What size needles did you use on that one?

  • The yoke sweater was knit on size two/3mm needles for the colors, and size one/2.5mm needles for the plain stockinette. It was something like 380 stitches per round on the body.

  • Did you use the Blue Shimmer pattern in "Poems of Color"? Your work is just stunning!

  • Yep, that's the Blue Shimmer from Poems of Color, but I used a different gauge and wanted a larger size, so I reworked the whole thing using EZ's percentage system. Worked like a charm.
