New Sweater on the Needles
We had the first real frost night and woke up to frost on everything. So it's just right to have another sweater on the needles as the winter will come sooner than later.
This is the Bøvertun pattern. It's originally a kofte (cardigan), but I wanted a sweater so I just didn't cast on the extra steeking stitches at the front. I have cast on with a provisional cast on so that I can pick up stitches for the neck and knit some short rows to make the back higher before I knit the rib at the top. Right now I'm done with the yoke and are about to separate for sleeves. I'm knitting it in Kauni - a yarn I haven't tried before, but so far I really like it!
