test knitters needed!

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Hiya friends!

Hey!  I wrote my first sweater pattern!  Like really wrote it.  And it comes in 5 sizes! It's been a collaboration with SkeinCocaine and her amazingly YUMMY yarn that has been underway for over a year.  I am SO excited to finally share this with you.
It has a bit of detail that I am crazy about.  A V-neck sweater with a fluted sleeve.  Just a slight flute.  Don't worry you won't be dragging it across the table when trying to reach for something.  And the flute fits into your coat sleeve nicely.  Not a lot of extra material in there, ya know.
The yarn is a dream to work with.  And truly feels so cozy on your body.  It's one lovely sweater.  And everyone needs a least one lovely sweater in their wardrobe!

Well, I had an amazing tech editor go over this with a fine tooth comb.  But I need some friends to knit it and make sure everything is in tip top shape before we send it off into the world.  So, if you are interested in knitting this, I have set up a group over on Ravelry.  If you could please join and message me through there, that would be great!  Thank you SO much in advance!

Yarn: 3 (3, 4, 5, 5) skeins Donegal Luxe Sock 75% Sw Blue Face Leicester / 25% nylon, 438 yd / 401 m / 100 g from Skein Cocaine, 4,(4, 4, 5, 5) skeins Suri Cloud 74% Baby Suri Alpaca / 26% silk, 328 yds / 300m / 50g from Skein Cocaine. (Held together.)
Gauge: 19 sts and 26 rows = 4” / 10 cm in stockinette stitch worked in the round on larger needles.
Needles: US 8 / 5 mm and US 7 / 4.5 mm circular needle, 24”/ 60 cm or longer especially if knitting the sleeves using magic loop OR US 8 / 5 mm double-pointed needles.
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Size: XS (S, M, L, XL)
Finished bust measurement: 34.5 (36, 38.5, 40, 42)” / 87.5 (91.5, 98, 101.5, 106.5) cm with 2” / 5 cm positive ease.
Notions: Waste yarn or stitch holders, stitch markers (5), tapestry needle.

xx, leslie
