FO: Graystone Sweater

Filed under:News! — Aileen @ 08:00

Pattern: Graystone Sweater from Veera’s Book of Gray.

Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted, 5 balls (1120m).

Needles: 4mm Knitpicks circular.

This was a really straight-forward knit. As always, the pattern was clear and easy to follow. Mostly, the garter stitch afforded wonderful mindless knitting but resulting in a gorgeous lap-blanket as you worked.

I had planned on making the sleeves longer but ran out of yarn. I think it still looks ok with a long sleeved top underneath. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the depth of the armholes. I have a very short armscye so I should have compensated. It looks a bit droopy. Otherwise, though, I will definitely be reaching for this come October!

  1. I think the short sleeves just look *right*. They balance out the super squooshy collar perfectly. If they’d been long it might’ve been too much sweater, you know what I mean?

  2. It looks awesome!! The sleeve length is totally fine, I think it works with the big squishy cowl and the asymmetrical cable. It’s beautiful!

  3. I love that neckline. It looks super cosy but elegant.
