Overall happiness with this project is very high, and not just because it’s finally finished. I think the extra time it took to rework some things was worth it. I did originally go for the split hem that was described in the pattern, but I really didn’t like the way it curled upwards. The ribbed hem is a bit more boring, but overall does look more clean and is simply much more practical.
And it fits! I’m very tempted to knit this pattern another time (although probably not in the near future) and I’d love to play around with different colours and maybe equally wide stripes. I think I wouldn’t mind it in a version that is a little longer and with full length sleeves. The shorter sleeves are definitely done by choice, but it is unfortunate that it isn’t a full winter sweater now. Also the jogless stripes aren’t as subtle as I would’ve hoped, but it is to an extent that I can live with it.
All in all I am a very happy knitter! And now I hope to also make another knitter very happy by announcing the winner of the Blossom cap pattern giveaway!
And the winner is….
Congrats! A copy of the pattern will be send to you on Ravelry, happy knitting! 🙂
