Eve's Nordic Sweater

Eve asked for a Nordic style sweater for Christmas - but she was very particular about the style, pattern and shaping! It was hard to find a pattern that fitted her requirements so in the end we adapted and modified.

Here is the finished sweater.

I wasn't sure how it would look until the last stitch was finally cast off, but I think it looks just right.

Eve is pleased with it - which is what matters.

I used a free pattern from DROPS for the colour work. You can see the details here.
The yoke was knitted on a circular needle and was very quick to knit up.

I seem to be getting through my planned projects relatively easily - no doubt I will find more to do to fill up any spare time. Now it's on with the Christmas Pudding Pixie!

  1. WOW!!! That is beautiful! I can't imagine any part of that being "quick to knit up." VERY impressive!
