FO: Sugarbush

This is a quick post to share some finished object photos with you of my completed Sugarbush jumper.

I so enjoyed this project! Everything about it was joyous. For a start, the pattern is really not that difficult. It would be a lovely first-colourwork-jumper project for an adventurous beginner. And then, the wool – I am so glad I got this wool for it. The colour is fabulous and is the best armour I have against grey days! Lastly, the resulting fabric from the small gauge is super snuggly but not dense or heavy at all. I can see myself being tempted to knit a Christmas version!

The wool is quite matt and sticky, and the colourwork blocked out better than I could have imagined. I used Sandnes Garn Tynn Peer Gynt, from Lanade, a German shop, and 3mm needles. You can read more about the details in my last blog post here.

You might be able to see here that I added in a wedge of additional short rows at the back of the neck. I do this on most jumpers because I have narrow shoulders. What I do is, leaving a section of about 10cm straddled across the centre back, I work short rows every 3-5cm back and forth until I almost meet in the centre. Then I continue working in the round.

The eagle-eyed among you might be able to spy the jog in the colourwork at the centre back! I don’t think it’s too noticeable. And anyway, if anyone is looking at it and they spot it, I won’t know!

That’s all for now. Hopefully I’ll share more again soon!
