The Adventure of sweater knitting… Part 2
My fifth sweater, was a super fun bottom-up. I made my own colorwork with it by knitting with 2 yarns in different colors, keeping one constant and changing the other . I did my swatching to determine my cast on stitches. I enjoy this sweater a lot. But defiantly learned more about the ease factor, and the sleeve tapering.
My sixth sweater was a top down with my own colorwork striping. This one so far is the best fitting sweater I have made. Things I would like to learn to do differently is the neck lines and the arm attaching.
Next up is a mid-sleeve bottom up colorwork, with fringe! I am so excited to spend more time this winter on the sweater.
I hope these blog post will encourage everyone to continue learning and not be scared to jump right in and start knitting sweaters...
