Notes

Doing long sleeves… :D
Started with the first sleeve tonight! :-))

4/8 First sleeve made. 55,1 g left of Alpaca Supreme. ☺
8/8 Second sleeve made…
9/8 Starting body…

  • I skipped the last two rows on the yoke pattern, including the last decrease, because I wanted a bit lower neckline…..

I love the finished product even if it came out on the shortish/smallish side…☻

And what was I thinking not measuring the length????
I have almost a full skein left of the Alpaca Supreme and the sweater is too short! Hoping it will grow some after blocking ☺☺☺

But….. If I was to do this again I would not cast on so many stitches, just the amount remaining after the border decrease because I honestly don’t like the effect all those sts are having…. it’s bulking out a lot, but I can imaging it would look good on a slim person (which I’m not ☻)

And the John Arbon Textiles Alpaca Supreme is just very gorgeous!! Try it!! ♥

Thank you Julia for modelling!☺

Decided to gift this to Julia for her birthday because it fits her so much better! So she will get “Camomille” later on and I can make a new b i g g e r sweater…☻
