Maile





Pattern: Maile by Nikki Van De Car
Yarn: My handspun 2-ply merino, fiber bought at OFFF several years ago
Needles:US4 Addi Turbos
Notes: I made a a lot of changes to the sleeves on this pattern. I knit mine in the round and started with 42 sts and did two increases pretty quickly. I made my sleeves much shorter too using Elizabeth Zimmermann's February Baby Sweater as inspiration. I held stitches on the sleeve and body underarm like a regular EPS sweater then grafted them when I finished the sweater. Kim suggested to me to do the buttonholes every 112 rows instead of 10 so that there would be a button on the collar band.
