I decided to follow this one to the letter: Twisted V-pullover by Alice Halbeisen. It is available free from Interweave Press, though their site is so irritating to use, I can’t readily find the link.
Like others I added a little to the length…also like others, I still wish I’d added more!
I’ve never knitted something with so much negative ease – too much???
Pattern Twisted V-pullover by Alice Halbeisen
Yarn Zara. It’s not as good as Karabella Aurora 8, but still, I’m more than happy to use it.
Modifications Added length and really, unless you are a complete exhibitionist, you have to do this.
Thoughts Well written out pattern, fun to knit. I’ve spent a couple of years avoiding the purl part of twisted rib, but it is only on the sleeves and you could do these in the round as well. I found, however, that it wasn’t the drama I was expecting. I accepted the advice about negative ease and, although a super-tight sweater isn’t really my thing, I’m not unhappy!
