My most recent FO is one that I’ve been working on for ages: a Malabrigo Dos sweater.
I’ve always been a Malabrigo fan but it’s pretty expensive for bigger projects such as this. I found some Dos on sale at Jimmy Beans Wool and picked up a few balls in Pimienta and Turquesa.
This was my first large project using stripes and it was definitely a struggle to make them even at first. However, I worked on quite a few other stripe-y baby cardigans throughout the project which made them a lot easier to handle.
I used Jane Richmond’s Ladies Classic Raglan Pullover for the neck and shoulder shaping and then kind of went off on my own for the rest.
This thing took absolutely forever to finish, mostly due to my stubbornness. I wanted to create it bottom-up, but my gauge wouldn’t cooperate. Even after swatching several times I simply couldn’t get it to fit right. I frogged the entire torso section four times before I gave up and decided to go top-down.
