Blinded by the Sun

 

I finished this sweater on my daughter’s birthday ( a lucky coincidence) and I am very pleased with it. It is my first top-down-sweater. I had fun knitting it and somehow I had the impression it was quicker than the usual way. And I absolutely love that I got the length just right! It is just great when you can try it on before it is finished.

The top was inspired by the Drawstring Raglan. Instructions came from this book and the yarn is Merlin from Louet. It is quite soft and it bloomed a bit after washing.

If I had gotten my way, I would have accented the neckline and sleeves with blue yarn for more contrast, but my daughter wanted green. So there.
