Here it is, all blocked! The sweater that came from the unravelled yarn of "Disappointing Sweater."
This time, I'm much, much happier.
The yarn, Cascade Highland Duo, is a super cuddly aran weight yarn. I used the same texture stitch yoke as the neck and cuffs for "This Wednesday Morning." Yes, I do have an affinity for cowl neck or some kind of tall, but not too tight neck. It's something I use again and again in my designs. I can't help it as I think it creates a flattering silhouette.
The yoke is round yoke with increases rounds along the yoke. I made it with about 5" positive ease. The result? a very comfy sweater that I can relax into. The sweater also has a gentle dropped hem on the back. I first made the ribbing on the first sleeve cuff 4" long, then I ripped it back and did it for 6" which I like the proportion much more.
I feel like I'd redeemed myself. Now I can happily move on to the next project.
