Paper Whales
Paper Dolls by Kate Davies Designs
Needles & yarn
US 3 - 3.25 mm

Planning to make the smallest version of this sweater with a yoke pattern featuring whales. I charted the pattern myself, based on a sweater I saw in the Paper Dolls project gallery.

My design was really chosen to work with the colours of yarn I had in my stash. I was keen to use up some of my Titus remnants- over a skein of the turquoise and blue colours from my League, over a skein of white from various projects.

The main colour is Bramley Baths. I had over a skein.

Cast on the first sleeve cap. Using 3.25mm needles.

The sleeve cap was so quick! Am now halfway through the second. Should have used 3mm needle.

Colourwork is so addictive. Note if I do the snow-type pattern at the top again- do decreases on colour rows rather than resting rows to keep the colour stitches evenly spaced.

Colourwork is finished! Now just working the decreases at the top of the yoke.

Working the final corrugated rib at the neckline. I remember finding the i-cord bindoffs a pain on my Paper Totoros. Hope I won’t struggle so much this time around!
