Needles & yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm
Ice Yarns Morbido Alpaca

I decided to rip off everything and start again with size 32


Joined front and back and knit body.


About to begin body increases.


Finished body :)


One sleeve down, one to go.


Finished, now it’s only weaving, blocking and taking pics ;)

below is the “old” version that I ripped off

I am very pleased to test this sweater for yellowcosmo . I am knitting version 2 and so far, so good.
First time I use ice yarn and for now I’m quite happy with the yarn. It’s soft but it tends to split but nothing too annoying for now.
Because my swatch was a little off with the stitch count, I decided to knit size 30 to get a size 32 in the end.
I finished the body… and had to rip the end off because it was too short. I would also have knitted size 32 in the end, it’s a little tighter than it should but nothing terrible. I’ll add some more increases towards the end and will lengthen the body.
