But my sweater lives in Western North Carolina, so I posed my mannequin in front of the view and the chimney on the deck this morning.
This sweater had an original construction, with only the sleeve seams to seam up. You started at the center back and worked out for a bit, then you did some on the lace trim coming around to the upper chest, and then completed each side of the yoke and shoulder.
Many of the people who have knit it have said they want to knit another, but I'm not sure. There was a lot of knitting from the underarm down with nothing to do to make it interesting, just the lace and regular increases right next to the lace to give it a sort of waterfall front -- the stiff mannequin is not really showing how the front drapes in real life. The lace is done in a simple four row sequence. If I make it again, it will be because I want something brainless to do that results in a pretty sweater.
