Guernsey Pullover Finished!
The only adjusting I did was that I added a simple 2 rounds of purl stitches to the neck edge. I thought this not only gives the neck a more polished look, but also blends in with the other reverse stockinette pattern separation stripes.
The yarn is a minimally processed worsted weight wool from Cottage Craft in a lavender heathered color called Fundy Fog.
These gansey style sweaters are so much fun to knit. I've already pulled out my cedar green Frangipani wool for another sweater. This next one will be my own design - something I've been noodling around in my head for a while now.I'm still deciding on how traditional I want to keep the design...gussets? dropped shoulders? split welt? cardigan, jacket or pullover? But first I need to swatch - then perhaps the yarn will tell me what it wants to be.
Makes me wish I was in a cold climate and could have you knit me stuff.
Where are you???
