Finished & Very Pleased


This was such an enjoyable project. (Never did I think I would say that about so much moss stitch!) I used just over 7 skeins of Louet Riverstone in the French Blue color to make the largest size. The sleeve length was a bit of a surprise, I somehow thought it was going to come to just below my elbow. It may the usual problem of pattern writers thinking that the fatter you are, the longer your arms are.


Because my pattern pieces were somewhat distorted, I blocked them all before sewing up. Live stitches at the top of the shoulders would have been a good idea but the seam turned out very tidy anyway. I think the blocking also helped reduce the curling on the lapel.

Your sweater looks terrific. I love that shade of blue. Seeing another completed sweater encourages me to keep plugging away at mine.

Great Job!
