I’m about to start DH’s fisherman’s Aran sweater. He bought me a book with Aran stitches and I’m waiting for it to arrive now. I’ve never worked without a pattern, so I’m totally winging it, but confident. I’ve swatched and swatched.
I know I’ll hit some bumps along the way, so I’ll probably be posting again…:lol:…but does anyone have any advice on the outset?
I’ll be doing seed stitch on the sides and bottom of the sleeves. Simple cables in front, back and sleeves…or is that too much??? Should the front and back look the same or should the back be simpler? I looked around on Ravelry for ideas and everyone photographs the front but never the back.
I’ll be making it in acryllid (Hobby Lobby’s ‘I Love This Yarn’:roll:…DH’s choice, I couldn’t change his mind). It IS quite nice for Acryllic though.:shock:
This is the book, BTW…in case anyone has used it:
