The Harlow Sweater
My Harlow Sweater
I have been looking for just the right sweater pattern for my daughter. Her stature and style are quite a bit different from mine, so I was looking for a pattern that was similar to the sweater styles that I’ve seen her wear.
I spotted this sweater pattern floating around Instagram and I snatched it. Of course, I made sure that she liked it first. She agreed. I agreed and the deal was done.
My first impression of the pattern wasn’t great. I enjoyed a lot of pics and this didn’t have any except for the top photo of the sweater. But as I ambled through the directions and knitted it out, the directions were written very well. I could follow through without any problems.
It stretch my limits with some of the construction techniques. I was so happy to learn so much more and build my knitting repertoire.
An I-cord was used to construct the back and the shoulders then you joined the entire body once you hit a certain length. I absolutely love that detail.
Another new to me detail was the construction of the v-neckline. I am so used to doing it a certain way of overlapping the v-neck area that I have never knit one flush. Also, extended the neck longer so that you fold it over to create a beautiful collar.
Here is the finished sweater.
If you are on the fence about the pattern, jump the fence. It is well worth it.
