Yarn: Cascade Ecological Wool
Needles: 8mm (US 11)
Mods: None. Knit it in pieces and seamed just like the pattern told me to.
Notes: I printed off the pattern before the correction to the back cables were made, so my lattice weaving is not perfect (the pattern page shows where the pattern correction occurs). But I don’t care- It’s beautiful, I can throw it on with just about anything, and it’s cozy and lovely. The pattern is utterly amazing- I’m so impressed by how it all came together, and how the collar was done. The sleeves are not too long- my hands were really cold, so I just automatically tucked my hands into the sleeves without realizing. It was -10 Celsius and I was frolicking on the shores of Lake Ontario in January. Cold was pretty much how it was going to be.
I have nothing but rave reviews for this yarn. The whole time is was knitting it, I kept exclaiming, “It’s so sheepy!” to my husband, who thankfully thought it was funny. This was my first time using the Eco Wool, and I will definitely be using it again, many many times in the future. It’s amazing.
If you haven’t made this sweater, and you enjoy cables, you must knit this. I wear mine all the time- more than any other sweater in my wardrobe, hand-knitted or not.
