I finished my bulky sweater the other day. I soaked it in some no rinse solution, and it took 2 days to dry. It smells so lovely and feels very soft.
I started with a very basic top down cardigan pattern and made some changes. For one, the yarn is Cascade Magnum and it's knit on a 10mm needle. This yarn is meant to behave like the buffalo wool we used to see sweaters made from. Then, I googled 'whale chart patterns' and got a whole page full. Once I had an idea, I drew up a chart to fit my number of stitches.
The rolled collar with be extra cozy in winter. I haven't had a baby to try this on, but I'm thinking it will fit about a 2 year old
The wooden buttons are from my stash. I just knew they would come in handy some day
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and would definitely make another. We will see if someone wants one or not. Next up -- a hat!
Happy stitching and thanks for stopping by.
