This little Jack-o-Lantern sweater has been in my queue for a while and Saturday, I said to myself . . I want to make this NOW so I stopped what I was working on and started it. I’m not the most experienced knitter and most of the sweaters I’ve made very detailed and I was able to follow step by step. This one is really simple but the instructions were a little vague for me. This is the first time I’ve done a bottom up piece by piece sweater. Everything else I’ve done has been top down and in the round.
I got the back done pretty easily and then I had to do the front!
The color work stuff is not so much fun for me . . yet but I’m going to master it! After blocking, I’m sure it will look better. The pattern came in size 2 and 4 and I added a few stitches to the size 2 so I’m hoping it will be about a size 3. Addie is wearing a size 2 but it would be nice if she could wear it this year and next year since she won’t get much wear out of a jack-o-lantern sweater.
I showed it to her on our video chat yesterday and she seemed to have liked it . . but she likes everything!
The back is done, the front is now done . . on to the sleeves, the seams and the neck ribbing and it will be finished and hopefully . . hand delivered in time for her to wear it!
