As I described a few posts ago,I was designing a circular sweater similar to Sandra McIver's Swirl, but knit from the body out to the edge.After finishing the knitting of the body, I washed it and blocked it, which smoothed out the welting and made it much larger and drapier. I knew the Silk Garden yarn would stretch with blocking, so I needed to check the length before knitting the sleeves. Here it is tried on before adding sleeves:
I think the length is good for a short person like myself! Final bindoff row had 380 stitches.
Here it is with the sleeves added. A very warm and comfy sweater, just the thing for these frigid months!
I used 2 colorways of Silk Garden, 354 and 337, but I don't think there is enough blue..I may have to make another one....
