My first argyle sweater!

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]At last I have finished my first argyle sweater for my husband. I have made the lines in duplicate stitch but the colors then became duller and we decided (me and my husband) that without the lines the sweater looks more elegant and bright.[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Yearn: Mondial Le Perle Gold Cashmere, 80 percent merino, 20 percent cashmere[/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]50 g., 175 m. needle size 3 mm.[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]To be honest will never knit with that yarn any more! Every smallest fault or uneven stitch is extremely visible. Husband can’t wear that sweater over the shirt because every seam or fold of the shirt is visible and spoils the look of the sweater. Only advantage of this yarn – softness. [/SIZE][/FONT]

That looks fantastic!!

Wow, that looks awesome! :cheering:

You may not like working with that yarn but the end result is outstanding. Just the right colour combination for your hubby as well. Very nice job!

That looks amazing!! What pattern did you use? The only thing my husbands wants me to make him is an argyle sweater and I can’t seem to find it anywhere. :nails: Figures, huh?

Wow. You did a fabulous job!

We are our own worst critics, I fear.

The sweater is beautiful! You did a lovely job!

Gorgeous job!! WOW! WTG!:cheering:

Very professional…well done

Beautifully done! :hug:

I’m still struggling with my first dishrag (keep increasing).

[COLOR=black]Thank You all for Your compliments. The pattern and description I will post later (I should scan). Now I should take to bed my two babies. In Lithuania now is evening (GMT+2). [/COLOR]

Wow I love it. It looks so professional!! love the color combination. you may have hated the yarn but the end result was AMAZING!!

Your stitch work is amazing!! :slight_smile: So clean and precise. Too bad the dupe st didn’t work for you but the results are fabulous.


[SIZE=3][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]The only sweater my husband wanted was argyle sweater too! I searched for the pattern also quite long. I used the 1st pattern for the relation between the argyles and the second scheme for the argyles themselves. If You will knit 1 row for 1 step You will get squat (low) argyles (sorry for my English). How many rows to knit You should decide by Yourself it depends how big do you want them, how thick is Your yarn etc. I knitted 3 samples to get the right size of the argyles. [/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]I really enjoyed knitting the argyles but that plane back and sleeves……[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Good luck and much fun by knitting![/SIZE][/FONT]
