Woot woot! Just in time: last Better Sweater of 2014 and I’m in love!

The process of actually knitting this project, though, was tricky. Cotton is so unforgiving! Not only did the yarn dry out my hands, it also hurt them as I strained to keep proper tension. Ultimately, though, the struggle was worth it and the final product is lovely. Soft but with structure, this sweater is perfect for all seasons.

When I cast on my gauge was a little off, so I swapped my size 5 needles for 4s. The fit is actually perfect now. I think the yarn is somewhere between a DK and a sport weight and gauge is 23 stitches and 37 rows.

The last photo is an image of the original sweater. For more info visit the Better Sweater Project page.

UPDATE (1/11/15): I’m going to elongate the sleeves and maybe the body. They’re just too short.
