Shetland Sweater Swatch


OK, here's my swatch for Andrew Morrison's sweater (see last post for link). I used Harrisville Highland, at about 5 stitches per inch. I'm thinking this will be my sturdy cardigan. I plan to work in the round, making corrugated ribbing on the bottom. I'm going to make raglan sleeves, and run a design detail up the raglan seam lines. I've got the sketch in my mind, but not yet committed to paper. I'm not sure yet about buttons vs. zipper, or exactly what the neckline will look like.

Those colors look so nice together. Can't wait to see it knit up, especially the shoulders.

You could make a (faux) mink collar so it matches the picture!
