Latest FO

As I have finally finished the Kauni Celtic jumper I've been knitting for DH, I thought I would share:

  • Based on a pattern by Alice Starmore.
  • I cheated by paring the number of yarns used to 2 & used multi coloured Kauni & a complementary green yarn (also Kauni) both were sport weight.
  • I put a different colour on it and also changed the cuffs.

Things I would do differently next time:

  • I would probably change the shape of the sleeves as I really wasn't that happy with them. (But I'm not so unhappy I shall unpick these!!).

Over all I'm quite happy with it, will pop label & pewter clasps on when dry & then turn it loose on poor DH!

It is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. I'd love to see a pic of the clasp that you will be putting on it.
