Pattern: 10Days
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed
Needles: US size 6 / 4 mm

My 10 days sweater. I casted on July 1st and today I finished it. Yay for quick knits! The sweater is also incredibly lighweight, only 250 grams.

I had some Rowan Felted Tweed in my stash and because I love to use more than only one color at a time, I added some contrast here and there. The sweater is worked from top down in the round, completely seamlessly. Sleeves are worked in reverse stockinette (to be honest, I reversed that and knit them inside out but I think most of us do that anyway). I shaped the hem with short rows so the other side is shorter than the other. The buttons are only decorative, there are no buttonholes. I thought I’d never open them anyway.

I love summer – the light, warm weather, vacation. Today I took several splash photos on the beach, it was so much fun.

    Very nice pattern! I love the color, the simplicity with the nice little details and the length! I love it when a sweater and sleeves are a little long. Congratulations!

    Todella kaunis neule :), tykkään myös sinisen tuomasta kontrastista.

    Ja muutenkin ihania neuleita teet (ensi kertaa täällä visiitillä).

    Nüüd, kus ma oma esimese kampsiku valmis sain, tundub, et köik on vöimalik. Isegi selle imeilusa pusa kudumine :-)
    Teen tütre kampsuni valmis ja siis tulen uuesti kaema.

    Ui, tykkään noista helman napeista ja nappilistoista :)

    Millä rannalle te käytte. En oo oikein vielä löytänyt mieleistä rantaa mistään inhimillisen matkan päästä :(
