I finished my Tubey Sweater!  I'm very pleased with how this one turned out.







Details:

Yarn used:  Cascade 220 in black - 3 skeins, 9461 (Yellow-green), 7830 (Coral red), 7816 (Turquoise Blue)  I used less than one skein of the three colors.

Needles: Size 8 circs

Mods:

   1. Used 3 colors and not always as directions indicated. Close, but not exact. I played around with the width of the stripes as I went along.
   2. Sewed the neckline to the shrug section after completing the sweater for about 1 inch on either side. The neckline before was way too low and revealing. I much prefer the neckline now.
   3. The rolling of the fabric was driving me nuts. I single crocheted around the sleeves and the entire neckline of the sweater including the shrug part in the back. Im considering doing this at the bottom as well, but havent decided as of yet. I might do it just to add a bit more length as well.

Note: I used the jogless stripe technique as follows:

   1. Join new yarn to old for one stitch.
   2. Drop old and knit 1 round with the new color.
   3. When you get back to the joining of the two colors, pick up the stitch below it and place it on the needles then ktog. Make sure to move your stitch marker and place it after this stitch. Your round will move one stitch each time.
   4. Knit around as usual.

Ooh, well done. I love that jumper (sweater) but have yet to conquer my fear of circs, and it's great to see how it looks with modifications.

I usually shy away from a lot of colors too, but I wanted to deviate from the norm this time and branch out a little.
