first saw this fly, I knew I had to use it at some point. I asked the designer, and she made it available as a chart on Ravelry.
Then I fell in love with the cowl "Stripes to keep me warm". And I saw lots of stripy sweaters on Ravelry (like this and this), and felt I needed a stripy sweater too.
Two skeins of Kauni Effektgarn bought for a long forgotten project to be, were fetched from stash, and striping started. I discovered the jogless stripes technique - you might notice the colour changes here, but it's not very obvious, is it?
The sweater is worked top down, starting out as in the "Stripes to keep me warm" cowl pattern. Obviuously a lot shorter neck than the cowl. I did the first increase as in the cowl pattern. The second increase was incorporated into the first rows of housefly chart. I divided for sleeves and body using the EZ percentage system.
I did some shaping on the body as I went, should have started it a bit earlier, but wool is forgiving and it looks nice enough, I think. I love wearing it!
Well done, Tori, first finished big project in a long time!
