Surprise Sweater - Boo Boo
I started on the Surprise Sweater using the worksheet at the end of this pattern Surprise Jacket. It's a machine knit pattern that I used for hand knitting.
I had to redo the mitered part a couple of times until I got the hang of it. I have to do a kind of short row wrap to avoid holes. Otherwise it has two rows of lace at the center of the miter. Now it's 1/2 complete. (Except for the ribbing for the bottom and sleeve cuffs)
It looks like the correct chest size but the sleeves look wrong (quite wide in my opinion).
So it's this project is on hold for now until I get the chance to check my measurements and calculations.
Certainly a cool and unique pattern.
