The bottom of the sweater has been knitted and I’m blocking it just to make sure the dimensions are correct- and they are. Yay! I decided to not give it any shaping. It’s going to hit the low hip and has just a small garter stitch edge. Very minimalist.
The sleeves are going to be wide with a matching garter stitch edge but with a bit of shaping. Not a lot, just a little to give the impression of a bell-shaped sleeve. I’m hoping that it will look nice and give it some style. Since I’ve broken one of my size 5 needles, I’m substituting a 4 because it’s all I have. I’m keeping the size 5 on the side where the stitches are formed. Hopefully, this won’t throw off my gauge. *keeping fingers crossed*
And, I’m thinking a collar would be nice. I guess I’ll have to wait and see where the sweater takes me and to see how much yarn I have left when I get there. Pockets and collar are potential additions.
I don’t know if it’s bad luck to name the sweater before it’s finished, but I came across an old English name that seemed fitting: Tullia. Let’s hope Tullia isn’t a bust! 🙂
