Yes, it’s done!
Am I happy? Yes.
What do I think about my first boxy style pullover?
It’s comfy to wear. Fourteen inches of ease might have something to do with that.
It was a lot of knitting. I was amazed when I weighed it and it only weighed 400g. It felt like it should have been more than that. The yarn is a cotton/linen blend by Sugar Bush called Cabot.
I really like the 3/4 length sleeves. Actually, what I really loved was that the sleeves where so nice and short, LOL. Maybe you can relate?
I would change a couple of things next time.
I would slope the sleeves to match the shoulder line.
I worked shaping on either side of the back panel. I like it.
Next time I would work the decreases and increases inside the pattern itself. Then the panel would have an hourglass shape. I feel like the back on these sweaters needs a little distraction from all that stockinette fabric.
I’m happy with my experiment. Will I knit another one? Maybe.
