The Dougie Sweater
Are you looking for a knit sweater project that you can snuggle in on a chilly evening?
I found the ultimate snuggle sweater.
Now, always that hardest part of the project; choosing the right colors. Even though it’s spring, I can’t get away from fall colors. It is quite a struggle to accept my fall mood. I want spring and bright, but my eyes are saying burgundy’s and brown.
Once I started to knit I knew that I was on the right path.
The directions on the pattern are simple and straight forward. I would highly recommend it to a beginner and intermediate knitter. There are a couple areas where the directions that you need to do are overlapping. Meaning that as you are working on a certain portion of the body you’ll also be working on another portion at the same time. First, read through the directions and get a good idea of what is happen then you should have everything under control.
I made one small adjustment to the pattern. Because of body style (smaller back) I shortened the length of the sweater. If you choose to make your sweater shorter, make sure that the body part at the end has the correct amount of stitches.
I am using my DK weight farm yarn with 250 yards in each skein.
