Christina Sweater

My Christina Sweater is done. I am very happy with the finished result. It did not come out exactly as I had planned, but I kind of expected that.


I have been working really hard these past few weeks, writing up a pattern. I wrote the pattern for mine before I started it. I am so thankful that I only had to make a few adjustments.


This sweater is knit from the top down with very little seaming.


It has an attached I-cord on the front and purl ridge hems at the bottom, collar, and sleeves, for a finished look. Little extra details like that go a long way.




The pattern will be available as a free download in the next few weeks, in sizes 30"-50".



More details later!
