i made my first sweater!!!! it's the concentric stripes cardigan from ravelry, size 0-6 months (or... possibly a little larger? i don't have a babe, i dunno. it's for a friend)

i must have done the make-1 parts a bit wrong though, because i have a weird disruption in my purl rows....? anyway, i'm enthralled with it, and it's a fantastic pattern.



and the cutest tractor buttons!

see what i mean about the color disruption??

and the little ribbed sleeve cuffs.


anyway, if any of you knitters have any pointers for me, it'd be great before i try and start my next sweater! thanks for looking!

I think its lovely! I don't know about the purl rows though - is it meant to be entirely stocking stitch on the chest part, or are they part of the design?

yep, the purl rows are intentional - written in that way. what bothers me is that every row after the purl rows include the make-1 instructions, and it kinda warps the way the purl rows "line up." maybe it's because i increased through the back loop? i dunno.

thanks for the compliments!

The pattern should have said which particular make 1 to use in order to maintain pattern continuity.  I'm not exactly sure which one would have been better to use though, sorry Sad

Congrats on your first sweater! You should be so proud, it looks super (and kind of vintage with the yarn you used) awesome!
