never ending story sweater

Friday, September 09, 2022

Okay... I'm going to start off by saying "YAY! It's off the needles!"

I actually have not had that feeling about a project in a long time. This is one I just had to power through.

I'll blame the half fisherman rib for that.  Shouldn't have been a surprise to me as the pattern is clearly a Half-Fisherman Rib knit!  
The thing is, I had never knit an entire sweater in half fisherman rib.
I love the yarn choice and bought this in several colors as it is a dreamy cotton. (I believe it about to become discontinued.)  I had plans to make a few but probably need to search for another cotton sweater to make instead.  

 Pattern:  Never Ending Story Sweater by Susanne Muller
Yarn:  Buttercup cotton by Purl Soho in Woodland Gray
Size: S
Needles:  US 4 for body and US 2 for cuff's.
Thoughts:  I absolutely love wearing this and truly would love one in black.  However, I am just not sure I can power through again.  It wasn't as if I thought this was an "enjoyable" knit.  I felt that the pattern was a bit tricky in some areas.  I also worked on the i-cord neckline a few times trying to get the right side to look like the left.  A friend over on YouTube suggested that maybe picking up stitches on the "down" side is different than when picking them on the "up" side.  Perhaps.

  1. I can understand your dilemma! Hey, at least you have one now, better than none. It is a nice-looking sweater, though I don't much want to make it either.

    A little light bulb just popped in my head. I have a sweater with an i cord edging on a v-neck and it bugs the heck out of me that it looks different on each side. For me it is where the icord meets the body that looks different but now it makes sense that the direction of the pick up is what is causing the difference. I will have to pay close attention next time and see if I can figure it out.
