More February

03 Mar

I suppose I could have saved this post and made this my March sweater, but not only did I knit most of it in February, I am also not happy with it. So I don’t want it to be my official March sweater.

This is the Brittania sweater, knit in Plymouth Encore. I love the yarn; the color reminds me of green nonpareils. I felt a craving for them the whole time I was knitting the sweater, but tracking them down was more effort than I was willing to give them. However, this was not a great yarn for this pattern. This sweater really needs more drape.


  1. Nice yarn to knit with
  2. Quick, easy pattern


  1. This sweater took much longer than it should have because I kept messing up
  2. Long V-necks don’t actually look good on me

Conclusion: While not itchy, it isn’t flattering either. I think I’m going to shove this in a tupperware for a few months and then frog it.

      It was so big, it would have fit dad. But I can make you something similar that actually fits.

        You should give it to dad then, I’m sure he would rock it.
