FO: Carrot Chuck

Filed under:Finished Objects,Sweaters — Aileen @ 19:20

This languished while I completed Christmas knitting but once I got going on the sleeves, it was quick to complete.

Pattern: Chuck, a download I found through Ravelry. It was about $5. Definitely worth it.

Yarn: Rico Essentials Soft Merino. I bought this from the Constant Knitter but I think This is Knit stock it too. I bought 11 balls but I only used 8.5.

I didn’t make many adjustments, just made the body and sleeves a bit longer. The pattern was really clear and easy to follow, including the charts.

I tried a new super-stretchy bind off for the cuffs and neckline. It works well but maybe a little too well for the neck. I think I might do the cast off again for a tighter finish.

All in all, a straight forward knit and a colour I don’t usually wear!
