Recently, I was reorganizing my stash and noticed that my sport/dk weight drawer was getting ridiculously full. In fact, my ziploc bag with 4+ skeins of swish DK leftover from my St. Brigid wouldn't fit at all. Frustrated, I tossed it on the floor and went to look for a pattern to knit it up since it wasn't fitting back in the drawer. I am loving all the garter yoke sweaters that I've been seeing on blogs and ravelry, mostly from the knit.1 pattern. I didn't have the pattern (I do now... :) so I busted out Ann Budd's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns and worked up a kids' seamless yoke sweater with garter stitch edgings. Once I got to the yoke, I split it for a henley and worked the entire yoke in garter stitch. `I ran out of swish DK for the top and worked the last inch or so in leftover Elegance. `
I have the buttons picked out, but haven't gotten a chance to sew them on yet. Sweet pea has already adopted this as her sweater of choice, and I haven't even gotten a chance to block it yet. It's weighs in at 494 yds, 472 of which is the swish DK. The link to my project page is here.
