It was time to do some stash cleaning! I had these yarns for such a long time that I decided to finally put them to good use. I got the inspiration for making this sweater after looking at some patterns on ravelry. I came across this pattern for a cute sleeveless buttoned tunic. Then I customized this design for my niece.
I remember wanting to learn a bit more about lace knitting. It requires more focus than normal knitting, but I was up to taking the challenge. Alhamdulilah, I came across another ravelry user who recommended doing a lace pattern for the bottom half of this sweater.
This is called a leaf pattern lace and it’s a multiple of 10 stitches + 1. I adjusted the sweater to the pattern so it could flow nicely.
I decided to make the neckline, waist and hem be in 2×2 rib instead of the garter stitch that the original pattern called for. I’m not a huge fan of the garter stitch. I also added half sleeves to the sweater. Overall, I’m quite satisfied with how it turned out, alhamdulilah. Best of all, my niece looked adorable in it :)
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
