It was so nice this time to be able to wear a finished sweater the moment it was actually finished.
I bought this yarn accidentally because it was extremely cheap and I liked the colors. The reddish color is less red, darker, and more rust-ish in real life. I had only four balls in this color, 1 in a different dyelot, which didn’t make my life easier (had to knit from two balls to make the difference less noticeable).
I did less colowork than in the original, no colowork on the body and sleeves. Added lots of short rows at the yoke (after the ribbing and 2 following fairisled stripes).
Divided in 4 parts and knit with seams like in my first one, but made only 2 increases in every second row +5 sts. on the front, and 3 increases in every second row + 4 sts. on the back.
All ribbing done through the back loop. Tubular cast on and cast off.
Used needles 2.5 mm for the yoke, 3.0 mm for the colorwork. 3 mm needles for the body.
The yarn is 55% Wool, 25% acrylic, and 20% nylon. It is not scratchy at all, soft but sturdy, and warm enough for the beginning of fall weather.
