FO Friday: The Cascades Pullover

It’s done and it fits and I love it! 

This was a thoroughly fun pattern for me, I was able to memorize the chart patterns quickly which made this a good, portable project. I should have done the sleeves first because, I’ll be honest, working all that waffle stitch after doing the interesting body was a bit of a drag. 

The Shepherd’s Wool was, again, fantastic. I’ve used this yarn (in this exact color, even) before for my Molly hat and knew it’d make an excellent sweater. It’s warm without being bulky, the stitch definition is excellent and it’s so so so soft.

Mods: I added waist shaping to better fit my pear shape. To do this, I started with the stitch count for the second size and decreased in the waffle stitch sections to get the numbers for the first size for my chest. I made the sleeves according to the second size because I don’t like tight upper arms or underarms. I added in a few extra decreases in the raglan shaping to finish off the yoke as the first size.

(yea, those are alpaca behind me. and mountains. it’s ok to be jealous)

What have you been working on lately? Any FOs to share?
