“The Ripple Effect” sweater pattern is now available for purchase!
It’s the PERFECT in between seasons sweater!
Introducing “The Ripple Effect”.
The perfect “in between seasons” sweater.
I’m so excited to share my newest pattern with you…
This fun, oversized sweater is PERFECT to throw on for a casual coffee date or lunch with the girlfriends.
Since it’s made using only the garter stitch, it’s an ideal project for the beginner knitter.
It’s also very versatile and can be worn with the seam exposed or hidden, with a shawl collar or flat.
I have to admit, I had no idea how this was going to turn out.
When I finished it last night at midnight, I wasn’t too sure about it. But trying it on today, I’m happy to say I love it! 💙
You have 2 ways you can wear it – with a collar or not. It’s definitely a weekend sweater. Big, loose and comfortable.
Pattern coming soon! (for reference, I’m 5’4″ and wear a medium/large in clothes).
So everyone, I’ve completed my very first sweater!😁
Please excuse all the dust on the mirror!! I didn’t notice it until after I had taken the picture! LOL!!
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. The sweater is knit flat in one piece and then seamed up. My kind of knitting!! 😆
I thought initially it was going to be too short, but I think I like the length now that I’m able to try it on.
However, the neck is very wide so it does tend to slide off the shoulder. For my next sweater (because I love the pattern and the style is SO ME!), I’m not going to make the neck so deep.
What I decided to do with this sweater, is buy ribbon that matches the darkest colour and sew 2 pieces to the top of the neckline on the back so I can tie it up and let the ribbon hang! I think it will make the sweater look pretty AND it will keep it from falling off!!
I found this pattern in an older knitting book by Margaret Hubert.
I used US size 8 needles and 4 balls of Caron Simply Soft Speckled yarn I purchased at yarncanada.ca.
Well, off to alter the pattern a bit to fix the neckline issue and then try to decide what colour my next sweater will be.
