Charlie Brown sweater

027Just finished the zigzag stitching on this sweater. Pattern designer Jennifer Hagan, Figheadh Yarnworks. Cascade Superwash Wool.

I need to press the stripe. The sweater itself was quick and easy. For some reason my stitches are loose around the neckline, right in front there. 4 buttons on the right shoulder, they were supposed to be on the left, but no baby will be putting himself into this sweater.  The pattern has you do duplicate stitch for the zigzag. Duplicate stitch is also called Swiss darning. It took me 3 times starting it to finally find out the proper way to do duplicate stitch. My tension wasn’t real great. If I’m ever to make this pattern again, I’d want to try knitting the stripe in, I’m thinking that would be much easier.

Overall I’m very happy with the result and I can’t wait to see a little baby boy named Darren modeling it. I will get it to him just in time for the weather to be very very hot. Hopefully he’ll be able to wear it for at least part of next winter. I’ve got lots of the blue yarn left, he really needs a matching hat.

    Yeah – a new post. Very cute sweater. I just finished the Figheadh Yarnworks – Mavis Scarf that I got at Knots & Bolts. All that’s left is to weave in the ends and block it….
