A SWEATER IS OFF THE NEEDLES!!

A sweater finish! 
 The pattern is Derecho by Berroco, Size 5 needles, 
Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball yarn held together with Jubilee Yarn Minnesota Delightfully Fine Yarn. 
 I made several alterations to the pattern-mainly I changed the hem from a high low, rounded hem to a standard hem making the ribbing with the same needles as the body so that the ribbing wouldn't pull in at the hem.  I also made the sleeves a bit longer.  
A very good knit!

  1. It's beautiful Cindy! The colors are very pretty and I really like the changes you've made. Maybe someday I'll knit myself something different than a cardigan. We'll see.
    Blessings,

  3. Love it!!! I need to find some yarn to make one for me. It will only take me 100 years. And sorry about the shawl redo, but totally understand. What a lovely case for her phone, a true original.
