Well, the Fogliame addiction stayed with me. I knit and knit and knit until the thing was finished.
The lace was so much fun to knit.
Pattern: Fogliame by Heather Zopetti
Yarn: Anzula Squishy (4 skeins)
Needles: US Size 4
- After picking up the 6 sts at the underarm, I decreased 2 sts every other round for 3 rounds. (so decreasing away the 6 underarm stitches)
- Sleeves: knit for 8 rounds, ribbing for 12 rounds
- Bind off for bottom of sweater: k2tog tbl VERY VERY loosely.
- All ribbing is k1tbl, p1 because I can’t read. :-) I didn’t realize that I was supposed to p1tbl until I was doing the sleeves. I wasn’t going to rip back, so I just did the same ‘wrong’ ribbing on the sleeves.
I loved this pattern. Perfectly written and easy to follow. I haven't knit a ton of sweaters, and I sometimes struggle with the directions - not this time! If you are looking for a light sweater, you should knit this one. Heather's KAL is still going on with lots of good prizes (one prize might be my book). :)
