And It’s Done!

I finished my modified Tea With Jam and Bread sweater yesterday and I love how it turned out.  The best part, it fits me perfectly and I am super excited that it does.  I love Heidi’s design but had to tweaked it to fit my body type, and my style.  


The particulars…

Size: L1 

Yarn: Lion Brown Wool-Ease (80% acrylic/20% wool). Main color: 5 skeins in the color Amber. Contrast Color: 1 skein in the colorCanyon Sunset.

Needles: Knitters Pride size US 7 and US 8 (16”, 24”, 36” and  47” circulars).

Modifications:

  • did a k1fb for the raglan increases
  • Worked one stripe only and eliminated the pockets.
  • I added 2 extra stitches at the underarm after the sleeves were separated 
  • I worked the bottom rib for 2”
  • For the sleeves, I picked up 68 stitches and decreased every 10 rounds to 52 stitches and ended each cuff with a 2” rib to match the bottom rib.

This was the last sweater of the year and plan to start with another sweater soon!

  1. I am always amazed at how quickly a sweater on larger needles comes off the needles. I should stop knitting fingering weight sweaters! This is going to be such a good wardrobe staple.

  2. Juliann, that’s why I love worsted weight sweaters and why I have never knitted a fingering weight sweater. I have knitted a sweater in dk weight and it took me forever to finish. I think so too, perfect to wear with just about everything 😊
