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!
