Armande Sweater

I joined the Selfish Sweater Knit-a-long (sskal2017), hosted by Andi Satterlund of Untangling Knots, back in January. The SSKAL is focused on creating cardigans, and in my opinion, Andi’s cardigans are amazing . Her patterns are straightforward to execute and have cute feminine touches like lacework and waist shaping. I previously tried to make her Minette sweater and failed horribly. One thing about most of Andi’s sweaters is that they fit snug (aka have 1-2″ negative ease). I messed up the sizing on my Minette so much I couldn’t even button it up. 😫

This time around I really thought about my gauge and how I wanted the sweater to fit. I opted for the medium size and am super pleased with the result. It is a must to layer up in San Francisco and my Armande has enough room for a shirt or two underneath.  img_1963

I used Patons Classic Wool Worsted in Jade Heather. Gosh I love this color. It is mainly green, but there are flecks of blue and yellow-green that really give the yarn some dimension. I am also really jazzed about these buttons that I found at Jo-Ann Fabrics. img_1965

All and all another successful sweater! Sorry I didn’t get any pictures with me wearing it quite yet. I was quite busy finishing up some other knitted goodies this weekend. Make sure to follow me on Instagram (@knitsbywhitsf) for future photos of my Armande Sweater in action.

Until Next Time,
