It’s sweater washing day here, and so, my brand new Aileas is taking it’s first real bath. But before dipping it into the wool wash, Spencer snapped a few pictures for my Ravelry page. I am in love with this sweater! I discussed the sweater on Episode 11 of the podcast in more detail and I posted some additional pics on Ravelry and Instagram–hard to remember, sometimes, where everything has been posted! I am still in need of some funky buttons . . . so if you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments 🙂
- Yarn: local IL shetland that I kettle dyed myself with acid dye; inner collar is Dream in Color SW Merino
- Pattern: Aileas by Isabell Kraemer
- Modifications: I added a Purl row so that the collar would turn more easily for the hemming. I also added a purple SW liner to the collar in pattern.
- If you make it: 1) be sure to pick up the faux cable stitches in the armpits and on the collar carefully so that the cable appears to continue seamlessly. 2) use a stretchy bind off for the front edges when you finish the button bands. I also used a 1/2 stretchy bind off for the upper collar.
