Notes

Will try to make a summer tee. Or a pullover with 3/4 sleeves (maybe long?). Will see if I have enough yarn.

This is the second time I’m knitting Isabell Kraemer’s design and I had to pick a smaller size. I got no ease and the back fits perfectly.

So far my mods are:

  • inc every 16th rnd
  • no stripes
  • crochet slip stitch edging around neck - made it easier to control its tightness and looks completely the same as knitted one (hook 5mm)
  • longer body
  • BO with bigger needle

Yarn:

  • absolutely stunning color with a nice sheen.
  • small bits of it fly in the air when knitting - it’s bad as they get into my eyes and stick to contact lenses and I have to stop working because my eyes hurt. It got even worse after washing - it’s extremely linty! (see the pic of my top after taking of the pullover)
  • it’s very stiff, as if I was knitting with twine
  • after washing it’s drapey and airy. It also grew in length.
  • I washed it in lukewarm water with plain washing liquid. No Eucalan or anything fancy.

Don’t mind the twisted fake seam on the right sleeve - it’s just blocked badly.
