A little Christmas present for myself.
Re-calculating and knitting a 100% acrylic sweater I bought some time ago for very little money because I liked the design. But I couldn’t wear it because I disliked the material.
Making now my own version in very nice and soft aplaca and wool blend yarn. Just perfect! I love this combo, brings out the best of both.
Made it bit longer though.
Also feeling excited to have a new basic sweater to wear with everything if can’t make up my mind or don’t want to or don’t have time to.

Front: 92g
Back: 94g
Sleeves: 132g = 318g so far
Everything is blocking now, already love how soft this is!
I think I’m going for a wider collar than the original.

Dec 17
Sleeves are seamed in, collar is blocking. Made it 10cm wide.
Decreased stitch size one click every 5 rows from 7 to 5 and back for other half.
Collar: 55g

Dec 20
Done! I am so happy with the result! Loooove the collar!! Best decision to make it that big!
