I did it!
I successfully designed a sweater!
It's a drop sleeve, High-Lo style sweater with 3/4 sleeves and fun cables running down the front.
I made it in Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky in Garnet Heather. It's a magical, squishy yarn that is just perfect for experimental sweater knitting!
I'm super happy with how this guy turned out. I plan on releasing the pattern as soon as I've knitted it all the way through one more time and made sure everything works. After that, I might run a test knit for anyone interested in trying it out before I release it to the public.
I'm still flabbergasted that all my measurements worked out and my big pile of string turned into a functioning garment! I'm already working on another original sweater design, that's how pumped I am!
This guy should be for sale in my Etsy shop soon. I want to order some custom labels with my logo and care information on them before shipping it off so it might be a little bit of a wait but it'll be listed soon! I'm excited to sell my first original sweater design!
Let me know what you think of it! Is this a sweater you would be interested in wearing? Would you want to knit one of these yourself?
I would love some feedback! I'm also open to name suggestions for this pattern!
Thanks for stopping by!
