IntSweMoDo #4, #7 of 14in2014

Mini-KAL with my wonderful friend, Jeannie!

This is my first time working this construction (the Barbara Walker method of top down with simultaneous set in sleeves) and I really, really like it.

3/2: Annnd, I’m pretty sure I’m going to run out of yarn. If anyone has a half a skein of 80/10/10 fingering in Oceana for sale - let me know!

3/11: Extra yarn has arrived!

The actual knitting took maybe a week, most of this time was spent tracking down extra yarn and waiting for it to arrive.

Sweater weighs 243g, and I’m guessing that means I used 2 skeins and tiny bit from a 3rd. I didn’t have full skeins to start with, so I don’t know exactly.

The sleeves are 14” from underarm, the body is 17” from underarm.

16 rnds of half twisted rib on hem, 8 rnds of half twisted rib on the sleeves.
