Adelina is finished!
This lovely sweater is the newest design from Stash, Knit, Repeat. The pattern should be available sometime this month – I promise I’ll let you know as soon as it’s out. I’m stealing this description of it from Amy, the designer, because she says it way better than I could:
Adelina is a classic, fitted V-neck sweater with a bold stripe of color to give it a modern, figure-flattering edge. The stripe is continued around the hips and (square) neck on the back, but not vertically. The sleeves and hem are done with fairly deep 1×1 rib, there are princess seams for shaping, and there will be both 3/4-length and long sleeve options.
Since this was a test knit I made very few changes to the pattern. My only modifications were to knit the bottom hem out of the same size needles as the body (all the other rib was done with a needle size smaller), and I changed the gauge to accommodate my yarn choice – I knit a size 32″ to fit a 36″ bust.
My version is knitted out of Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport in Meet Brown, Joe and Rose Quartz. I held two strands together because, although I could get gauge with a single strand, the fabric was lighter than I wanted. If you remember, I was a little worried about the yarn irritating me, but it’s doesn’t. It’s incredibly soft.
