Rhombing around – my new sweater

12k

The pattern of this sweater has twelve pages – wow! At first I was a little shocked. Is it that complicated? It is, a little, but the written pattern is a perfect help. Every step is described in detail so that it is actually easy to knit this sweater. Only finishing the neckline gave me a little trouble. I was not able to understand the steps, even though there is a perfect description, even with photos. Luckily, my dear friend schwarzmeerchen was around and she understood in within seconds (thank you so much!) and finished it for me. Because of the very good pattern I didn’t need to change a lot. I only addes some more rows at the body and the harms before knitting the hem, since my sweater turned out a little short. After blocking the sweater turned out a little longer then expected and now has the perfect size 😀

I wish I had this pattern when I started knitting socks. I had such problems with the heel that I didn’t finish my first pair of socks for over a year. I just couldn’t understand how to do the heel flap and I needed some help from a friends mother in law (and her patience) until I got it. With this pattern it would have been easier, I am sure. The little pictures that lead you to every step are great. Absolutely perfect for beginners! For advanced knitters it is a quick knit. Perfect for unicolour or hand dyed wool. I love the result.
