I had bought two skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca yarn about a year ago. I had intended a scarf initially. But later realized I could just about make it into a minimal pullover for me.
Inspired by such projects in Ravelry, I decided to come up with a mishmash of my own. 🙂
I defined minimal like this :
(1) Use the two Alpaca skeins. If extra yarn is needed find a match from stash.
(2) Boat neck ,which means not much neck shaping.
(3) Short sleeves – Obviously, a choice for minimal.
(4) Fitted style – Which means no extra garment hanging out from any part. So I attempted a straightforward shaping for this.
Also, I have tried to keep the shaping fully-fashioned, as in the increases and decreases are not kept hidden but made to look as part of the front design.
Finally, I am happy with the fit of this pullover. Note to myself : Try and knit using a finer yarn for a fitted wearable. Next time! 🙂
