This pullover, I made without a pattern and I am not at that point where I have models, make-up artist and professional photographs of my work, just me wearing my finished sweater and I am very happy with the result. 😀
This is my first knitting pattern. First time ever writing it, scaling it in size and making something without a pattern.
The Herringbone pullover is a bottom up, knitted in the round pullover with a knitted herringbone pattern around the waist, loosely hugging the waist. The pullover is spacious around the bust & body with a wide neckline and bishop sleeves with high cuffs.The pullover is not snug around the body, part of my cozy, chunky, funky design/style.
When I found the images, I wanted to make some but I could not find the pattern for them… I looked and searched… but no luck (at the time)!
So I had to figure out the pattern myself.. it went ok… if I say so myself…
The original pattern/image that I found is much cuter and I just couldn’t figure out how to make it as cute. My version is just a sad little thing compared to the pattern I wanted. But luckily the baby’s that got them don’t care.
Here bellow you can see that at this point I was still working on the pattern as there were some details I did not think were good enough… And the mouth I need to learn to do better!
I will get there…
This is the second version of the pattern and I like it so far, the butterfly/bumblebee is not big but has the perfect size for a very little one.
