Blair’s sweater: the second attempt

I decided to rip Blair’s sweater back to the point where the yoke and arms join. No tears were shed. In fact, I’m actually excited to tackle this again with a new plan of attack! I think I’ve learned a lot since I originally started this sweater two years ago, so the end result should be much nicer this time. I hope the motivation lasts long enough to get it done before I get distracted by something else.

I plan on making the sweater a bit longer before I add the arms again. I also plan on using Elizabeth Zimmermann’s hybrid shoulder shaping with a crew neck rather than attempting the raglan and v-neck again. I’ve seen a few sweaters using this shaping combination in blog land and I think it’s quite flattering. Hopefully I’ll have better luck the second time round on this sweater.

I just couldn’t bear to take a picture of the ripped sweater. But I will be sure to post a picture of the FO. Maybe I’ll even be able to convince Blair to model it!
