boxxxy

finished another beautiful testknit for Joji 
a super cute oversized sweater



had to wait for my yarn to begin my dragonflies jumper test
for her, so she asked me, if i like to test this sweater
in the meantime...loads of stockinette
and I really mean LOADS of stockinette!!!
but after knitting millions of little stitches there was
an absolute perfect sweater coming of my needles
needless to say, that i really love this sweater!



yarn. fingering weight yarn from an unlabled cone
needles. 3.5 mm 
pattern. boxy by Joji Locatelli

knitted the seamed version and also knitted my sleeves flat
to keep gauge constant
only a few minor mods:
shortened the body to 37 cm total length
added more rows to the bottom ribbing


for now i work on my dragonflies and have so much fun knitting
these little dragonflies in the pattern, that i had to slow down
cause i don't want this project to end :D

also working on the final versions of the patterns
there is too much going on here to get them ready earlier
so we do it step by step...

hope you all have good days

  8. I am currently knitting this sweater but love your modifications. You write that you have shortened the body to 37 cm, would you tell me how many cm's you knitted before decreasing for the armhole. Thank you so much!
