weekender sweater with crew neck

Wednesday, October 09, 2019

I must say, I am pretty happy this sweater is off the needles and I can honestly say I like it.

As I mentioned, I wasn't happy with the neckline of the Weekender on me.  It's not that I don't like how it looks, I think it truly is one of the most darling sweaters out there, I just didn't like how the boatneck felt on me.
So, I decided to rework the neckline into a simple crew.  This feels so much better on my neck.  This I can wear.
I've put the changes I have made over on Ravelry.  But, only for my size.  If you would like help, however, I am happy to help.

Oh!  And one small thing.  This yarn is Malibrigo Rios.  A superwash yarn which can be machine washed and dried.  Um.  I did just that and it shrunk!  I need to rewash and pull and try to reshape it to the original size.  It's a lot smaller than it was.  Ugh.

Pattern:  The Weekender

  1. Cute! However, been there, done that with superwash (a different but widely available brand). I'm thinking superwash means super WASH, not necessarily pop in the dryer? Unless the ball band says otherwise...I'm fairly certain that's where I went wrong, but fortunately that was only a hat. Hope you are able to recover it well!
