Here is the finished body of my Chevrons sweater. It only took a few days to complete the entire thing–sleeves and all. I will take proper snaps of it this week hopefully, so you can see the finished results. Fit is perfect for me; not tight or fitted, just a perfect every day super cold winter in Boston wearing sweater.
I love love it.
Knit up in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter–cast iron for the main and fossil for the chevron details. Left off the button up turtle neck part (had done that on my previous version of Chevrons) for a slightly open neck and to try something different.
More snaps of the finished sweater soon! What did you know at Thanksgiving?
Two ferociously cold nights here in Boston meant early to bed with blankets and books and knitting projects, of course. After those two nights, I have a fair isle yoke, already divided for the sleeves and body, completed.
And I’m loving it.
I’ve knitted the Chevrons sweater before for my mum as a Christmas gift last winter. This time, I decided to use Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in cast iron for the main color and fossil for the color work; the contrast of the black and the bone is amazing and I’m loving everything about this new version.
I’m hoping to get a substantial part of the body done tonight, but I’ve got to pack for my Thanksgiving vacation, too. Here’s to hoping I can finish it this weekend so maybe I can start the Willard Fair Isle Pullover with that gorgeous Owl yarn just waiting for me.
