Terry's Sweater by Vikki!


I received this email from Vikki, a regular Knit Witter who enjoys coming to the shop on Fridays. This week she brought in this sweater that she designed and knit for her husband.
"Here's the photo of my husband Terry in his new sweater.

After looking at a book of fair isle patterns, I designed my own
pattern.
The placement of the pattern was an idea I got from a Checkheaton (not
sure
of the spelling!) pattern. I knit it in the round steeking the sleeves
and
neckline. I used Silky Wool yarn."

Vikki steeked the sleeves...so that was a great learning experience. The sleeve was knit down from the steek.

Brava, Vikki, Brava!
