Notes

Loved knitting this. KSH Glamour was a perfect choice for this lovely pattern.

Pattern is top down and well written. I made long sleeves because this will be a sweater I’ll wear when it’s chilly and knew I’d want long sleeves next fall. I knit the sleeves flat adding 1 selvedge stitch on each side for seaming. Also added decreases to have slim fitting sleeves all the way to the wrist. At the garter cuff, I cast off those two seam stitches and proceeded with the pattern as written for cuff, then seamed the sleeve.

I modified the pattern to make a 33” but wish I had made the 32”, it feels a tiny bit big. I may bring in the neck by running a hidden single crochet on the inside of the neck ribbing. If I were to make it again, I would make the neck a tiny bit smaller, but that’s just me.

The yarn. Heaven people, just heaven. Man I love KSH, and when I saw Rowan had added sequins, I was the first in line to buy a bundle of it. I love they way the sequins sparkle and glimmer. A little bit thicker than the original KSH, and some may find it a bit easier to knit.

More info on my blog page. Very very happy with this project.

The buttons are vintage mirrored buttons found on Etsy.
