Finished the Periwinkle sweater... :)
I am very satisfied with the yarn.. It is Caron Wintuck and it knitted up very nicely .. It feels nice and cozy on and I love the color!
I did a few changes to the pattern along the way!
First I made it about one inch shorter because it is a Ladies Small but it is for a ten Year Old !!! ( My Grandaughter Allie )
Then I made a buttonband instead of a zipper.. Just because that is ny preference!!!.. Actually I did not want to have to sew in a zipper .. LOL and besides.. Where would I find a Periwinkle Zipper anyway!!!
Then instead of binding off in the rib pattern on the collar.. I did a crochet bind off and did a three stitch crochet over the drop stitch rib to give the collar more of a " swing" to it..
I liked this pattern and I will no doubt do another one......
Below is a close up of the beads that I knitted in .. I put them in all the places where there are Ribs...
