I cast on the Cobblestone Pullover while Kellen and I were in Idaho visiting his family, as sort of a birthday gift. I was amazed at how much I got done while we were on vacation- about half of the body.
Unfortunately, when I got home I realized my gauge was off. I swatched, of course, but these things happen. I got gauge with a smaller needle, but I just didn't like the fabric- this yarn wants to be 4 st/in. So, with a little knitterly math on my part I decided to knit the smallest size in my original gauge, which gave me a 44" chest. Perfecto!Pattern:
Cobblestone Pullover by Jared Flood, Interweave Knits Fall 2007. Yarn:
Plymouth Encore Worsted, color no. 1444, purchased at Webs
anniversary sale, with this project in mind. I love this colorway, it's brown with a blue cast and tweedy bits- perfect for this sweater, minus my gauge issues.Needles:
Knitpicks Options, US 7 at a gauge of 4 stitches per inch.
This sweater was a lot of fun to make. The pattern is fairly easy, but the short row shaping in the yoke keeps you on your toes. I just finished weaving in the ends last night and today we dropped it off at the county fair. We'll see how it does! Regardless, Kellen is happy, so I'm happy.
