It’s Beatnik, Bitch

October 16, 2011

I’m so in love with this sweater I don’t care I look 10lbs. heavier wearing it.

I made the collar a bit shorter at 1.5″ instead of 2″ folded. I also picked up an extra 30 stitches. I tried without them but the gaps caused the raw edge to flip forward.

It was my first time seaming and things went pretty smoothly.

I didn’t have enough time to weave in the ends because I had to beat the sunlight for photos. I tried my best to hide them but still had to crop a few out… I just couldn’t wait to post!

I’ve never been so excited with a finished object.

On to the next one, Akoya!

Pattern: Beatnik

Needles: Us6/US8

    Whaaaa! It looks so good! I love the color you chose, and I’m sure it doesn’t make you look heavy. Never!

    That’s so awesome or as I like to say, “Dope Freshness.” I wish I could knit, sew, or anything creative in fashion. Maybe one day, I’ll learn this art.

    That is awesome! Nice work. I have been wanting to knit this but I don’t think it would suit me so I don’t want to waste all that knitting time.
