My BFF Robbie Payne showed me a Cowl she was knitting. I loved it and went right up to the studio and got yarn to knit it.
I thought it would take about 2 skeins.
When I could see it would only take a little more than 1 skein I changed course.
I had 6 skeins of this yarn so I decided to knit a sweater.
It is going “relatively” fast since it is knit on size 15 needles.
The cowl part was knit on a circular needle, but I decided to knit the front and back flat as I knew it would hang better with side seams.
I am “knitting this by the seat of my pants” and making some of the calculations as I go.
I’m hoping it will be one of those big oversize sweaters that are in style this year.
However when you knit this way it could end up to be a body hugging sweater to wear under a jacket!
Only time will tell, so stay tuned if you want to hear “the rest of the story”!
