Notes

I started this back in January of 2015! It’s been in hibernation for quite a while! I made the smallest size and modified to make smaller, but could have made it smaller still. I decided I liked the front (the low part of the neck) in the back, although it looks good either way, it’s nice to have some versatility in a sweater.

For the sleeves I picked up stitches around the arm scythe and knit short rows down to the body, then joined in the round and knit to the elbow making decreases every 3/4”. At the elbow, I knit front, back and front of every stitch (making 1 stitch into 3), thereby tripling the amount of stitches to make a flounce at the end of the sleeve. Love the way that turned out.

The yarn is perfection. 4 Ply cotton can often feel like you’re knitting with string, but not Summerlite. It has a very cashmere-like quality while knitting--very soft and forgiving in the hands. The fabric is just heaven, very lightweight and soft.

I think my granddaughter has her eye on this, so I may wear it a few times and gift it to her the next time I see her. It’s darling and I love it.
