here it comes. My Sylvi. The loveliest piece of handknit I ever did. But it took me years and tears. I once did it. Without trying gauge, I admit. I completed both sleeves, the back and part of the first front, when I had to admit that it was way of gauge and a lot too short. It had to be frogged. After that, I let it hibernate for a year and a half or so, because I just couldn’t see it anymore. All that seed stitch… Well, finally I redid it, going up a needle size. Gauge was fine but it still is way shorter as in the pattern. I added length to the sleeves. But I love it as it is and I will definetively knit more from this designer. I love her stuff.
Pattern from here. I have to say that you can find some really nice patterns on the twistcollective site. Go have a look!
OK, here are some pics of my Sylvi. I love it and I’m wearing it all the time. Weather is good at the moment, permitting me to show off everywhere, it is replacing a jacket.
…detail on the back…
…front side… the detail is not in the pattern, I invented it while knitting.
Detail I added.
All in all, I’m absolutely happy with it. Really happy.
Have a nice weekend,
