I LOVE this sweater. I dreamed for sooo long about this one. It stayed in my queue a long time, and then I bought the yarn. But again, it stayed in my wips list for a long time. I was afraid of starting it, I was afraid that I would be disappointed. I was afraid of all the techniques I didn’t know. I was afraid of the double garter st. I was afraid of the pockets, the short row sleeves.
And now, it’s done, it’s marvelous, and I love it.
I did 5 sets of dec for both sleeves. I only did 3 rows of double garter st for the buttonband.
