It is test knit for Boknits. The pattern is inspired by Helmut Lang ‘Inherent Texture’ Knit Sweater.
3/2 Started charting it in Excel to get better overview for myself.
4/2 Cast on holding the yarn double. In this pattern quite a lot is going on same time. Need to follow different charts and increases.
14/2 I did a bit less increases for body before separation. When dividing I had 59 sts for a sleeve and 98 for back/front. Separated body and sleeves now.

German invisible short rows instead of wrap&turn.
Finished with 110 st in front/back.

I wanted to get a bit longer sweater and knitted it longer. But after soaking and blocking it turned to be too long, garter stitch and holes grow a lot. Holes seems more open now. Maybe it up on the yarn as well, don’t know really. Sleeves are now longer as well. I’m happy to have longer sleeves because at first I thought they might be a bit too short. I might rip back about 10 cm on body.

Nov/14 Finally shortened it. 56 gr of yarn left over.
