Due to overwhelming popular demand (okay, one person emailed me and one person left a comment), I’ve extended the sizing for the Teal Hogget sweater so there’s one smaller size. Size range now stands at 37, 40, 43, and 46 inches.
Due to overwhelming popular demand (see above), I am posting the pattern now. You can get it, in Adobe .pdf format, here.
Please note that this pattern has been posted, shivering and alone and untested, as-is. Popular demand asked that I post the pattern now, as-is, so that those who care to do so could follow along at home. I’ll make any and all corrections as I go along, and post updated versions of the pattern as needed. There’ll be a link to the pattern in the sidebar, when I get around to it.
I did start my own Teal Hogget.
The yarn is a little wonky because, hello: it’s handspun spun by an amateur! But it’s quite nice to knit. Surprisingly so. Nicely sproingy with a little sheen.
Speaking of handspun, I finished my brown Bond hogget:
It’s heavy worsted weight, 4 ounces. 160 yards. I quite like it. I did a bunch more spinning over the weekend . . . but I’ll save it for blog fodder as the week progresses.
Still Working on Rose!
I did get some Rose time in over the weekend — I’ve started the front neck steek. See?
I put the front neck center stitches on a length of yarn and cast on steek stitches. I’m decreasing on either side of the steek to create the curve on the sides of the neck.
Lucy is simply fascinated by the whole thing.
