This was originally intended for one of my brothers when he was 10...about 17 years ago, haha. My grandmother lost the pattern and figured I could probably reuse the yarn for something, but I didn't want to take apart all her work. This is how much she had complete: (I'm guessing it was going to be a LS Crew Neck)


And this is what waking up at 3AM produces!
(front)


(back)








Sorry about the overload!  Grin Before I had the sides sewn and hood complete my husband said, "It's disgustingly cute!" Hahaha

I undid my grandmother's work to a few rows before the underarms, made sleeves, then joined for knitting in the round, then did a split neck. There is 1 row of single crochet along this split part that I did after I finished binding off the hood ribknit. The only bad thing about this is that it's Red Heart Acrylic. This is only for layering over long sleeved shirts in the dead of winter. I cannot wait to actually wear it!!! And I was going to make a pattern, but I'm not good at doing different sizes, plus I don't remember how many decreases I did along the top (there were some worked in the cables). The hood came out a little big, but that's better than too small. But it's basically a bottom up raglan, and believe it or not there are only 2 sets of increases in the front and 1 set in the back. The Moss stitch and cables are incredibly stretchy! (Thank God for that, otherwise this would not have fit over my bewbs! lol)

He's right, it IS awful cute (I couldn't bring myself to call it disgustingly cute. I'd say amazingly cute!)!

SUPER CUTE!! I freakin LOVE cables, lol.  Drawn to them like moths to a flame.  This looks great on you! It is very flattering!  I think it's great that you preserved your grandma's knitting as well!  I also like that you used carried the moss stitch all over and added a hood! Maybe you could write up and sell the pattern if you have time...wink, wink, nudge, nudge  Wink

WOW! Those cables are amazing! It fits you perfectly too--I am very impressed. This may just inspire me to actually learn to cable.

Don't you hate it when people fill up their signature with random junk you could care less about reading but when you see how long it is you figure it has to be important so you keep reading but it's not worth your time and you just wasted a whole minute reading absolutely nothing at all? I do.

I LOVE it!  I should work on something like this too!  How much yarn do you think it took?
