Julissa sweater - twin leaf versionSaturday, November 08, 2014
Finished a couple of sweaters over the last few months - but have got behind on the blogging!
For this sweater I decided to use the pattern Julissa (scoop neck version) by Vanessa Smith as a base for a cardigan (as I had heard it was very well-written) - but then decided that the cabling might not be quite enough to keep me entertained - so somehow ended up replacing the cable with multiple Twin leaf lace patterns and just using Julissa as a base.
Perhaps a bit of a silly way to approach such a project with so many great cardigan patterns out there, but it worked in the end.
The yarn is Skein DK in the Quill colourway. This is the only DK weight sweater that I've made so far that seems easy to wear. I think the cardigan-ness makes it much easier to put on than a pullover - but unfortunately the button band is a bit thick and droops a little. Still fairly happy with this creation :)
