I needed a quick break from my current projects, this yarn was annoying me with all the space it was taking up in my stash bin, and a week later I had a very 80's beachy pullover.
I don't think it's the most flattering thing I've ever knit, and due to its construction, it's kind of hard to alter. You knit it from sleeve to sleeve, with the ribbing added later. So- no waist shaping, no option to shorten of lengthen. As it is, I made the smallest size the pattern offered up, and it is quite big. I mean, it's supposed to have some ease, but batwings are in, right? RIGHT?
Wishful thinking, this is. But alas! The end of February is in sight.
The pattern is Athena from the Rowan All Seasons Chunky collection. It used 6 skeins of the aforementioned All Seasons Chunky in the color Dune- it's a weird, highly twisted ropy cotton that makes for instant gratification and nearly impossible seems.
