Sorry for the sun spots, but it was REALLY bright that day with all the snow and we could barely see to take the photos. I debated for a long time on whether to make full length sleeves or not because I knew how warm the yarn would be. I ended up going full length after trying it on with a three-quarter sleeve. It looked odd and really needed the length. I did, however, modify the sleeves a bit. I picked up two more stitches under each arm than in the pattern and I did ZERO decreases. This created a less fitted sleeve with a bit of a bell cuff. So happy I did this to get the extra room and movement. I also custom knitted them to my short arm length.
Yarn: Plymouth Earth Mainland
Needle: US 7
Pattern: Deep Water by Cecily Glowik MacDonald (in her book Deep Water)
Notions: Two black leather buttons on the outside and a clear button on the inside.
I think this sweater will be worn on super cold days and nights and with a top under it that can become the featured attraction if necessary! A great project that used up about 1300 yards of yarn.
