The Ampersand sweaters are finally (mostly) done! A little blocking, a couple of ends need to be weaved in, and they are complete. These are based on the pattern from unionpearl which I found on Ravelry. I say based on, because they are clearly more talented than I and I had to adapt the pattern to meet my lazy knitting process. Their flickr picture of the ampersand is here. A couple of notes:
All are in cotton, although the sizes of each sweater differs because of yarn type, needle, my ability to pay attention to the directions, etc.
Also – the finishing part is my least favorite and since these were five pieces that needed to be sewn together – they got a little messier each time something else was “sewn” together. :o) oh well.
There are a couple – where I tried a different pattern, with the arms sewn as part of the sweater. Not really happy about the results, but it’s not like you are actually going to wear them, so you know. Enjoy, toss, give to a kid for their doll or hang on a tree. They are yours. xo
