FO: Gathered Pullover II

* Presenting Gathered Pullover II!

* Back

* Baby cable rib detailing on sleeves

* Cabled detail

I know, I know, I'm a very bad girl. This sweater was finished about 2.5 months ago, but I never seemed to get around to blogging about it although it is up on Ravelry. I haven't been knitting as feverishly as usual lately, although I'm merely hours away from finishing Printed Silk Cardigan. Right now, I'm plugging on the buttonband and then comes the sewing. Ugh. My goal is to finish it by 7/2, so hopefully it should be up by next month. I also have another Anthro-inspired Scarflet on the needles for my mom which should debut soon. :-)

Pattern: Gathered Pullover
Yarn: Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette in Pebble
Needles: US 5 and US 7
Amount: 6 balls
Mods: I mainly used Tweedy's mods on Ravelry and added some of my own.
Cast on for the 36.25” size, but decreased down to 32” for bust
Instead of a rolled hem, I did 2 repeats of the Baby Cable Rib from Backward Cabled Pullover
Added waist shaping
Longer body
Short rows and 3 needle bind-off for shoulders
Worked another inch before splitting fronts and back
Left 5 extra stitches at each shoulder to make the V less wide
Followed XS directions for the sleeves and gradually switched to S directions for the upper arms
Did one repeat of the Baby Cable Rib for the neckline in the round
