Autumn Rose finale.....
It's done.....well, I think I'll give it a steam press to set it now that I know it fits. After steaming, I'll clean up the neckline steek and tack it down. But other than that, it's done!
This is me trying to replicate one of the photos in the Simply Shetland 4 book......
This sweater is my favourite fair isle.....I love it.
More photos and thoughts on this design at Shades of Shetland.
This sweater has to be close fitting -- no ease to speak of -- or the neckline won't sit close to the body. Don't make your sweater too large.
I started Autumn Rose on Friday, June 29 -- so this was an 8 week knit for me -- don't forget, I got a head start on most of you. But I can attest, the pattern is error free, follow the written instructions as well as the charts, and you'll be okay!
