I don't have a neutral colored sweater to just chuck on with a pair of jeans. So I decided to go with our Color Natural.
The front and the back worked up really quick and fun. Easy but enough to keep my interest.
Next were the sleeves, I worked the sleeves like the pattern called for. When I went to mattress seam the sleeves together I realized my arms are a little bigger then what the pattern called for.
I tore back to right before the shoulder shaping and increase a sts at each edge every 4th row. Till I had added 6 sts. Then I finished attaching the sleeves as the pattern said to.
Lastly was the collar, its stated that you should use a 4 US needle.
(After working the collar, I think I would of pickup about 10 sts less)
For blocking I wet blocked it and layed it flat to dry. After a couple hours when the garment was still damp I placed it in the dryer on low heat tumble dry to fluff the garment up.
If you are wanting to make one of these cute pullovers for yourself this is what you will need!
