Pattern: Arabella, by Ann McCauley, from Brooklyn Tweed Wool People 7.
Yarn: Kiwi Wool in cream, a DK weight yarn from Lambspun. I bought this yarn many years ago in both undyed and the cream colors. This incredibly soft yarn that has held up well through various recycling projects.
Modifications: I adjusted the gauge for a thinner yarn, but other than that, I made the sweater pretty much according to pattern. As usual, I picked up stitches for the sleeves and knitted them from top down (because I really hate sewing in sleeves) and made them shorter than specified. I also winged the collar; even with proportional adjustments for the gauge, I picked up fewer stitches than the math indicated.
Thoughts: I love the swing shape of the tunic, although I am not enamoured of the squared-off shape of the split hem. If I were to knit this again I would start the decrease of the sides from the bottom rather than wait until after the side seams are joined. The sweater is simple and elegant.
