FO: Pole

Filed under:Cardigans,Finished Objects,Shawls,Sweaters — Aileen @ 08:04

Ok! This is the last of my current finished object series. I got this blocked out and dried last week.

Pattern: Pole by Joji.

Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted from This is Knit, in natural/undyed colourway, 5 skeins. Neither words nor pictures can convey the sensation of knitting with this yarn. Let me just say that if there was a house fire, I would take this stuff and be ok with letting the rest fry.

Needles: 6mm, 6.5mm and 7mm.

The sleeves are definitely the most fun part of the pattern.

I didn’t make any modifications but I did go with the option to sew the seams on the back. I grafted the back seam initially but it looked terrible. The main body of the garment is knit in short row wedges all the way around. The only thing I am wondering about, now that I compare my photos with others’, is whether or not I knit too many wedges. I think I did. I was a bit spaced when I knit that part.

Either way, as you can see, it makes for pretty good comfort knitting. It’s the kind of thing you pull on when you are dying from the plague, or curled up on the couch with a hot drink watching the rain fall on the window.
