I finished Z’s Abate with probably 7 yards to spare. I ended up adding about 3/4″ to the body and made the rest as the pattern specified. It fits perfectly with the cuffs rolled back and will probably fit next year as well. Love it!
Yep, she’s playing with scissors in these pictures. She was very interested in helping me cut the extra pieces of yarn when I was weaving in the ends. I think it’s good practice for her next classroom.
I’m so relieved that this sweater fits and that I had enough yarn to make it exactly as I wanted.
Um, speaking of Cascade yarns…I may have slipped and bought a couple more sweater quantities of some discontinued colors from WEBS. The purplish one is Goseille and the green one is Evergreen. The purple is even more vibrant and beautiful than I expected. The green will probably become something for Matt and I’ll definitely keep the Goseille for myself.
