This one knit up even faster than my Dala horse sweater, mainly because I didn't have to frog the colourwork section 5 times before getting it right. There are still a few little (or not so little!) mistakes though, which is annoying but takes me closer to the perfect sweater every time.
For example - see the top picture? (
Also, see here in the yoke? The first section is knit on straight needles, then the increases done in the round. There's an obvious difference in tension, despite using the same width of needles both times. Weird.
On top of that, the collar will not lie flat, despite ample blocking. I don't know if this is the yarn, my knitting, or my blocking, but either way, it's ANNOYING!
I used a little train button from my stash to finish off the collar, which is supposed to be the front of the sweater but may have to be the back to hide the awkward stepped fairisle. Sigh, practice makes perfect right? And I'm sure the baby won't care! I'll definitely be making this one again, such a nice, quick, easy make and knitted up in about 3 days. Perfect summer project!
