Midseason Test Knit

Project info
Midseason Sweater by Carina Spencer
Carina Spencer
M, cropped with long sleeves
Needles & yarn
US 2½ - 3.0 mm
US 4 - 3.5 mm
US 7 - 4.5 mm
HiKoo® by skacel Sueño Tweed
5 skeins = 1275.0 yards (1165.9 meters), 500 grams
The Royal Bee Yarn Company LLC in Pacifica, California

US 7 for twisted and leaning ribbing in body
US 2.5 for lace
US 4 for twisted ribbing at neckline

I ended up using size 2.5 instead of 2 to loosen up the lace just a bit. I found the lace on my swatch with 2s pretty stiff. The gauge difference is so small, I doubt it will cause any issues.

Total yardage: 1120


All done! This piece is so short, but still takes a while to knit because of the leaning twisted sts. I also started feeling pain in my wrist while working on the sleeves, so I really slowed down in the last 2 weeks.

I love how the fabric feels post-blocking. It has a lovely drape to it.

The finished piece does feel a tad too cropped to me, but it works as a layer over a dress or some very high waisted skirts.
