FO: Nordic Urban

Finally done!
Nordic Urban Sweater

This took way longer than it should have due to my reknitting so many of the pieces, either because of gauge problems or my own silliness.

Had I just knit the sweater according to the pattern in the first place, it would probably have been fine other than needing to shorten the yoke. I just took the long way around.

I’m very happy with it, and am looking forward to wearing it if it actually gets cool enough around here. It was 78 degrees when I was wearing it outside for the pictures. At the end of October!

Nordic Urban Sweater

Pattern: 140-11 Nordic Urban
Yarn: Garnstudio DROPS Big Fabel

Modifications: Aside from knitting the sweater in pieces not at all according to the directions, the only real changes from the pattern were to eliminate the first motif of the yoke to make it shorter (my row gauge was too big), and to change the neck treatment from a turtleneck to a crew neck. All other parts were knit with the same stitch count and measurements as the pattern. Details on my Ravelry project.

    Beautiful! I was advised to “just follow the pattern” by a gal at our knitting group. Turned out she was right and it was the best fitting sweater I ever knit!! Lucky I followed her advice. 🙂

    Doesn’t matter how long it took to finish. What matters is how beautiful it is, how well it fits, and how it makes you feel when you wear it! Job well done!
