the finished sky sweater

It’s done! :D

Actu­al­ly, it’s been done a while ago, just haven’t had time to post about it. It took about a month alto­geth­er. You can see the first post here, and updates here, here, and here :D)

Here’s the back of it…

And I like the dif­fer­ent stripe pat­terns where the side seams meet :D

I fin­ished all of the edges with a row of hdc.

It’s just one big rec­tan­gle with a neck opening. Per­haps when I have more time I can share how I made it. 

I think my love of mak­ing square tops and vests come from my mom. She used to cro­chet and knit a lot of vests too, from beau­ti­ful Japan­ese pat­terns (She’s expert at read­ing the charts; none of us in the fam­i­ly actu­al­ly know how to read Japanese).

And final­ly, an awe­some illus­tra­tion that I think is quite fit­ting for this post…

  1. Trish, are the stripes in the sweater relat­ed to the weath­er on a giv­en day? I saw a blan­ket done like that before and just loved the idea.

    P.S. That sweater car­toon is so me… every Mon­day… lol!

  2. oh yes, i for­got to link back to the first post of the project! it explains the sky sweater idea :D it’s now added. thank you for ask­ing the question!

  3. Your sweater turned out great, and I just love the whole idea behind the stripes!
    Hope you have a great week­end too!

  4. So cool, Trish! Or I should say “warm”, as it will def­i­nite­ly keep you! Such a neat con­cept. My lit­tle strip of a sky scarf is going to have to start over, begin­ning the first day of Win­ter. It’s some­thing you real­ly need to do every day, rather than keep track on a cal­en­dar and hope you even­tu­al­ly get to it, which has been me :-).
