For those of you that may have tried this pattern, I hope you won’t be mad. ūüôā

I made a couple more of them and changed the pattern and it is easier and comes out with less  bulk on the shoulders and armholes. The sweater with the wreath and red bow is the new pattern and the wreath with the gold beads is the older pattern. I know it is hard to see the difference but there is. Besides, knitting the sleeves from the top down and no ribber on the sleeve stitches saves a lot of time.

I changed the way the shoulder stitches are bound off. I pulled one set of shoulder stitches through the other and then latched them off one stitch through the next and secured at the shoulder seam.

I knitted the sleeves from the top down by hanging two stitches from the sweater armhole edge to start. I knit one row and then picked up a stitch opposite the carriage onto the next needle to the right of the first two stitches and knit a row. I repeated this until I had 15 stitches on the bed. When I finished with the sleeve, I knit 3 rows at tension 3 and one row at tension 4 . Starting with the second stitch in from the edge I reformed the stitches and knit them back up. I did this with every other stitch for the rib. Then I took these stitches off on waste yarn and latched one stitch through the next until all were latched off. It was easier and the cuff is tighter.  The new directions are in my drop box.

Miniature Sweater with Tatted Collar


Miniature sweater witht tatted collar

Before Christmas I received an order for five miniature white plain sweater ornaments.¬† Every Christmas this woman’s grandmother would wear a plain white sweater and her grandfather would wear a red vest.The woman recently lost her grandmother¬†and¬†she wanted to have these to give to her uncle and siblings in remembrance of them. The uncle got a sweater and the red vest the grandfather wore.

So I drew up this pattern with little set in sleeves so the arms did not stick straight out. While making one of the fronts, I came out with an extra stitch on the front  so I tossed that aside and continued to knit the rest. While I was finishing one I thought about a tatted collar since the collars are hard to do because they are so small. On the five sweaters I used a roll collar  but it was difficult to sew the seam. I decided to use the front I had made and finish a little sweater and try a tatted collar since I am back into that hobby. I took the pattern for a tatted necklace and made the collar and then I just crocheted it on. So, here is my five hour sweater! LOL

Here is the link to my drop box for my pattern. ūüôā
