FO Friday: Moss Cropped Sweater


Pattern: A heavily modified version of Ariana by Novel Reed
Yarn: Cascade Yarn Pacific in Moss, held double
Needles: US Size 7

Unfortunately, the Ariana pattern is no longer available, but it was an invaluable jumping off point for my initial measurements and stitch counts.



My goal right now is to knit things that I'll actually wear (most of my handknits end up gathering dust in my closet). I figured the best place to start for inspiration was my own wardrobe. I have a favorite navy blue cropped sweater that I purchased a couple of years ago that I used as a rough template for this sweater. 



I used a top-down seamless construction (I avoid seams at all costs). I may rip the cast off edge out and redo it using Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off as there's not as much give as I would like on the bottom hem.  I was too excited to be finished so for now I'll leave it as is :)
