Here is a quick shot of my Rook Pullover by Kyoko Nakoyoshi right after I divided the body and sleeves. Paying attention during the increasing section and flipping between the sleeve and body charts was a pain since I read patterns on my phone, but it wasn’t a challenging pattern to understand, despite looking so!
I love the way its coming out. Instead of using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter as this pattern called for, I decided to try knitting it in Quince and Co.’s Owl Tweet yarn in the buffalo plaid colorway. The rich wine color is amazing, but now that we are headed into spring, I’m yearning for brighter, sunnier colors and this feels so winter.
Alas, next winter I will appreciate it, so I plod along.
Top down sweaters are my favorite because you can try them on as you go and I always struggle with fit–too tight, comfortable to wear but sloppy looking size wise, the whole gamut. I wanted this one to fit appropriately, so I am knitting the smallest size and hoping it won’t be too tight after blocking, though it should be fitted.
Here’s to hoping its completed in the next few days. What’s on your needles?
