the Boat Neck

What do they say about life getting in the way... as much as I try to get these out in a timely manner I'm always behind!

The next 3 patterns I post are not for the pedestrian knitter as your participation is needed in making it a perfect fit for your size. Although the pieces themselves may look simple enough the techniques used are more for an intermediate knitter. The sizes are easy to adjust as you work and will be noted in the pattern using the numbers provided as a guide.

As usual these are worked top down and the beauty of that for me is being able to try on the piece as you work to make the modifications needed resulting in a perfectly fitting sweater. Size modifications will be noted where needed throughout the patterns and if you get stuck email me I enjoy helping others understand top down construction.

Pattern #1: the Boat Neck

I fell in love with "the Boat Neck". I think of Jean Seberg or Audrey Hepburn in their casual late 50's attire and it's a shape I could wear everyday. I know in a previous post I said I was adding neck and cuff variations but I spoke too soon. After living with the sweater for a while I didn't want to take away from it's simplicity.

Sizes: S (30-32” bust), M (32-34), L (36-38) larger sizes are easy to adjust to using the modifications noted in the pattern. Knit on #9's using 3 (4,5) skeins of Aslan Trends Invernal (color #22/295yds); a rabbit angora, merino & polyamide blend that was so wonderful to work with I can't wait to use it again.
