daily pullover .2

Thursday, April 21, 2022

You know you have a good pattern when you knit it twice. And want to knit it again!

This is my second Daily Pullover and I truly can't love the ease and simplicity of it any more.  
I have become more and more mindful of what my wardrobe needs and what I need to knit in order to fill that void.  I want to wear my sweaters over and over and enjoy all aspects of them.  The process and the project.   That's not to say I will throw something colorful in the mix every now and then but for now I am craving Classic pieces.  Pieces that will wear easily.  
I will be making Libby one in Kettle Black because she loves mine so much.  And then I'm sure I will have another one in my future.  I truly would love a stack of Daily Pullovers!

Yarn:  Linen Quill in Fresh Nutmeg
Needles:  US 3
Size:  2
Modifications:  I added length to the body making my body 12" before the short rows.  I also knit a twisted rib instead of the standard rib.  On the hem and sleeves I did the Italian Bind Off and on the neckline I did a Standard Bind Off, binding off tightly in order to bring up the V.  I truly don't think I would go to the trouble of doing either the twisted rib or the Italian bind off again.  (IF you do a twisted rib with an Italian bind off you have to untwist the stitches before you begin the bind off.  That part was not fun.  There is a way to accomplish it without untwisting, but that was not fun either!)

  2. Leslie, I love this sweater so much and will def make one. I made the Half/Half Triangle Wrap in Linen Quill and thought it was nice to knit with. I am wondering though if it is "itchy" with wearing it as a sweater? Does it pill under the arms and sides of the sweater with wearing it a lot?

    Thank you!
