Clothing, Knitting, With Yarn

Cottongrass Jumper by the Petite Knitter

During last year’s holiday party at Fancy Tiger, the knitters voted Cottongrass Jumper by the Petite Knitter to be the knit along piece for 2020.  I decided to try Kelbourne Woolens Scout in Mint Heather and Natural because I thought by the time this is done, it’ll be spring.

I knitted in Women’s S.  The yoke turned out quite big and the body was a bit small.  I tried to stretched it out quite a bit during blocking and it didn’t help. It gets a little awkward when I try to raise my arms.

I made two modifications. I repeated row 7-14 upside down for the bottom of the body and sleeves.  During the 1×1 ribbing, I made it into two color ribbing.

The yarn was a little scratchy to wear on its own.  I wear an Uniqlo Heattech undershirt and it was perfect for 50 degree weather.
