Notes

Blogged here.
My daughter has been asking for Mariusgenser for years. She might get it for birthday this year ;)

I will use the chart but not knitting instructions. I’ll knit it top down in one piece. Let’s see how it works out.

Needles: 3.5 mm for stranded knitting, 3.25 mm for plain,
3 mm for ribbing.

10/4 Patterned bodice is done. Does it look all right?

13/5 Yay, I finished it just in time!
Original Mariusgenser is a boxy sweater but my daughter wanted it to be more body hugging. I prefer top-down knitting. So I knitted Mariusgenser top-down with set-it sleeves using just original charts. What caught my eye in top-down colour work were single stitches. Normally a stitch looks like a V, but in top-down colour work stitches are up-side-down V’s. Is it an issue just for a knitter or does it matter really?
