Clothing, Knitting, With Yarn

Tecumseh by Caitlin Hunter

The hardest thing for me to do lately when knitting a sweater was to choose the right colors.  I am constantly Googling color combos.  I want something that standsout but not flashy.  It’s very time consuming.  Of course it doesn’t always work out.  Then the sweater is buried in a dark corner of my closet.

Fortunately, it worked out this time.  My knitting friend KJ recommended Brooklyn Tweed Arbor.  The price is reasonable.  I used Fleet as the MC, Klimt and Camp as the CC.

I knitted this in size S.  I used 5 skeins of Fleet, 2 skeins of Camp and 1 skien of Klimt.  I didn’t have enough Fleet to complete the required sleeve length.  So this turned into a 3/4 sleeve.

The only mod I did was split the sleeves and body right after the second cross instead of the second feather pattern.  I learned from Andrea Mowry’s Wool and Honey that I am not a big fan of saggy/baggy underarms.

I accidentally repeated row 12 and 13 once on Chart B.  So my middle feather on the body is a bit longer than the rest.  But you can’t see it from a distance. 😛

Overall, I’m really happy how this turned out.  I hope we get a few more cool days before summer hits! Thank you for stopping by.  Happy knitting!
