Annie of Green Gable
Yay! My Green Gable is done!
Pattern is from Zephyr Style. I used the yarn it called for - Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. The color I used is Plum Patina. It was a fun knit and pretty fast to make. The stockinette isn't all that boring since there is some simple shaping, plus you can try it on as you go. For more information about my modifications, check out my post on the Green Gable Knitalong.
One small problem...the ribbing at the bottom is too tight. The pattern says to go down 2 needle sizes for the ribbing, but since the sweater is already form fitting, having a tight edge isn't doing me any favors. So thanks to Areli's tutorial, looks like I will be re-knitting the ribbing with larger needles. Hopefully the looser ribbing will work better, I really don't want to go back and add even more waist increases.
Despite this setback, I am very happy with my sweater. (Green Gable counts as a sweater in my book!) In 20+ years of knitting, I have never made myself a sweater. Ok, besides the red, fuzzy acrylic thing I made in the 6th grade with size us15 needles. Boatneck, no sleeves, all garter stitch. Yeowser.
