Sweater Finish Details

 
 Isn't it a beauty?!
It is knit in a Merino Superwash, Webs, Valley Yarn DK, 11 balls on #6 needles.
I ordered another ball  more than the pattern listed because I knew I was going to lengthen it a bit in the body.  I added 2' and it sits just at my hip;  a very comfortable fit!
The sides are knit in garter stitch and the 2 knit stitches on the side make the sides lay flat instead of bow out the way garter can do.
It is a genius move!
The back is worked the same as the front which means the pattern is easy to read and apply.
There are short rows to make the back neck sit higher than the front and affords a good fit.

And now I am working the sleeves of Invariance.....round and round and round!

  2. ❤️ this sweater! I like my sweaters longer, too. If they're not long enough, I'm constantly tugging on the hem.
