Notes

I was tempted to call this pullover “In The Blink Of An Eye” because it was deliciously rapid to knit. And very easy too. I must say I am even prouder of my daughter, the model, than the sweater. That Lichen green (it’s not very lichen-coloured in my humble opinion) is striking with her auburn hair.

I omitted the side pockets. I’m not a great fan of features which add bulk to the side. Héloïse agreed with me which made for an even faster knitting experience.

Two stitches were added to the underarm pick ups which were decreased in the subsequent round. I fear there would have been two gaping holes otherwise.

I also made it longer in length. My daughter may be slim but she’s pretty tall too.

I would make this again. I enjoyed the Puffin yarn despite the fact I am a fine yarn girl.

Enjoy!
