I finally finished this project. I had a leftover skein, so GardenPurl requested a headband of the same cable (though I personally think it works better as a cowl) and I still have about a half-skein left.
The sweater is huge. It makes me wonder how I will ever knit a sweater for a guy in any weight besides worsted or up. It took me about a month and a half, which is not bad considering how I had to change the gauge to fit the yarn and all sorts of other mishaps along the way. I had to rip back a few time to get it right.
This yarn is super cozy and quite soft. I wish I could keep the sweater but I’m practically swimming in it, so it’s probably just as well. If I could make some mods, it would be to keep the cable going as long as I could get it to go. It looks kind of odd just stopping the way it did. Oh well.
Pattern: Vihervaara-huppari/Green Gable Hoodie (Ravelry link) with LOTS and LOTS of mods.
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb’s Worsted Superwash (Blaze)
Needle: Size 8
One WWFY swap down, one left to go… Lots and lots of socks… =/ I need my sock mojo back.
