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.

  4. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog
    that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt
    for something concerning this.
