|The Jan Sweater|
Or rather, most of it. I was able to complete all the pieces but the second sleeve, which I managed to squeeze out last week. I sewed it together on Friday and Saturday, in between other projects.
I made this one slightly differently from the first one. I wanted it to be slouchier, so I could wear it with lower-waisted bottoms, so instead of starting with fewer stitches for the ribbing and then increasing to the number for the main body, I just started with the number of body stitches right from the beginning. I also did the ribbing in the same size needles as the main pattern. It is quite a bit slouchier than the first one, but I wish I'd made it an inch or two longer. However, I had just enough yarn as it is.
And just for laughs, here's the uncropped photo:
Why is this funny? Because my left foot looks twice as big as my right foot! And actually it's a whole size smaller!
Here are some more outtakes:
