Hooks Used: C and D


I’m using my Mountain Tweed undyed for the main color and then using a whole bunch of MT minis in a variety of colors for the other stripes in the sweater. I think it will be so much fun!

I think this might be turning out a little large, as I feel like maybe I’m a loose crocheter (as well as a knitter!), but I have marked off the area that will be the back, and if the fronts end up being too large to accommodate bands, I may just do a crocheted edging and leave it hang open rather than adding buttons. We’ll see.

9/30 – Hibernating this until after TWT Sweater KAL.

6/29/21 – Pulled this back out since my mom’s here and in the bedroom and I left all of my current projects in there so I need something to work on. I did find a C hook though, so I’ve moved down to that to see if that helps with gauge and size.

2/1/22 – I’ve started working on this again. It’s further along than I thought. Working on the uppers and am almost done. I think? I’m also not sure if I might need to rip back because the armhole depth is seeming like it might be too deep.
