The Snowdrop Sweater

The Snowdrop sweater is one of those patterns I saw, bought, and cast on for right away. I started on Saturday evening and was seaming it up on Tuesday night.


I used some big, black, vintage buttons from my stash. I love the fit of this one. It looks great unbuttoned too.




The Details:
Pattern: Snowdrop Sweater Jacket by Woolly Mammoth Knits.
Yarn: Lion Brand Fisherman's wool, three strands held together.
Mod: I knit the collar different. I wanted something shorter and knit the button band all the way up.
The pattern says that it is a fitted sweater. I usually knit size 34 or 26, but decided on the 38 just to be safe. Before doing a wet block I could not even button it, which made me nervous. After the block it was a perfect fit!

I've never used this yarn. What did you think about it? Is it washable?

It looks so nice.
How do you wet block the sweater? Do you spray it with water or handwash it and lay it to dry?

Gorgeous!I can't believe how fast you knit it. You inspired me to order the pattern because I have some Fisherman's Wool in my stash. Can you share some details about the modifications you made on the collar?
