I made this sweater as a part of CAL organised on Instagram by a Russian designer Svetlana Novikova.
It was quite a learning curve for me, as I am more used to UK/US style of patterns, with details about gauge, finished measurements etc. The information we have received was very vague and general. As a result, I lost count how many times I had started the yoke over and over again, until I got the fit right, and my sleeves are a bit narrow and short – as I had no energy left to correct them.
That sad, I love the sweater, and I am now a devoted adept of top-down one piece crothet garments – they are even easier to try on than the knitted ones, as you do not have to worry about having a need cord that’s log enough! I also now have a much better understanding of the construction, and will definitely do more using the same concept – but different yokes, necklines, shapes etc. Once I have a garment that’s my own design, I will shate the pattern, for sure!
