Hello everyone! I've finally knitted my first sweater. I'm usually a crocheter, but after seeing all the knit sweaters my sister makes, I decided to give it a try.
Pattern: Salvia from Knitter's Spring 2007
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Cotton
Needle Size: 4.5 mm (US 7) straights and DPNs (the need for DPNs was an unexpected surprise!)
I'll show the pics and then give a breakdown of all the new things I learned:
New things I learned:
-How to use DPNs. The sleeves started on straights for the split cuffs, then switched to DPNs and then back to straights. It was a surprise, I thought you only needed the DPNs for I-cord!
-I-cord and attached I-cord
-Picking up stitches
-3rd sleeve syndrome: due to a minor error in placing a stitch marker, the cuff was slightly off for one sleeve. So I ended up making it twice.
I love how knitted sweaters drape in comparison to crochet. I'm addicted now, I think!
Thanks for any comments.
