Rowan Brea Sweater

Rowan Brea Sweater
Originally uploaded by actionhero

I finished weaving in the ends of this sweater early this afternoon, so I could wear it out running errands. The only mods I made were shortening the sleeves just a tiny bit and knitting four rows of garter stitch at the hem and the sleeves edges to prevent curling. This sweater is very warm, soft, and cozy. I love how it turned out!

One Project at a Time

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I usually only work on one project at a time and right now I'm focusing on knitting this Brea sweater. It's knitting up pretty quickly and I'm almost finished with the front. Pictured here is the completed back. I really love this yarn and it was well worth the money spent. I'm looking forward to wearing this sweater!

Brea Cables

Once the cable pattern started, the knitting on the sweater got fun! This Lima yarn creates an amazing fabric that is extremely soft and a pleasure to knit. I just decreased to shape the armholes. Just a little more to go before the back is done.
