NaKniSweMo – extended edition

Here is my completed sweater for NaKniSweMo; only two months overdue.

Pattern: Carnaby Street Pullover

Yarn: Brown Sheep Lanaloft Sportweight; color Scottish hillside

After quite a few cardigans this is the first pullover I have made and I am really happy with it. I think of all the garments I knit this one passes the closest for ‘store bought’. I knit this with an inch negative ease and after washing (the pic was taken prior to washing) it relaxed nicely. The biggest modification I made was to knit the button band for only half of the length on the body that the pattern called for because that look would seriously not be flattering on me. I also lengthened the sleeves to full length while shortening the length of the cuff to work better without being folded over.

Now I’m finally on to the socks. All the snow here has made for excellent knitting time.
