Bristol sweater

dsc_0138This sweater has a 50’s feel to it, don’t you think? It is similar to the Dublin dress, but the sweater is knit with only one strand of yarn and on thinner needles. Another difference is that it is knit top down.

As always, I have paid a lot of attention to the details. I have used the contiguous method so that the sleeves and body comes together perfectly. To ensure that the finished garment is extremely elastic I have used italian cast on and bind off together with a pattern that basicly is a rib/cable pattern with small bobbles in it. The elastic pattern and cast on/bind off makes this almost a one size fits all (but of course the pattern is available in S, M and L, to secure the perfect fit that we want).

The pattern is available on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/18-bristol-sweater
