Gauge-free and Any Gauge patterns by Deb

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.

Cheers, Deb

  1. It may be boxy, but it is the style and it looks good on you, Deb! Great FO. It really doesn’t look like all that pos ease, though. I love how you are always willing to try new and different things..and make them come out so good too!

    1. It’s not that much ease around my hips, ha, ha. Now I’m going to go back to my tried and true, the raglan. Home base for me.


  2. Hi Deb,
    Yaaay, it’s a good feeling to get a project finished. Looks good & pretty color. Can’t wait to see what you start next.

  3. I’ve been eyeballing those paper-thin, over-sized, summer knits for some time & even bought a pattern. But, when I really looked at how much time it would take to knit – well, I chickened out. I decided I should make a Tee from left over sock yarn instead. At least all the color changes should keep my interest longer than ALL THAT STOCKINETTE in one color.
