And I finished the reindeer Cowichan inspired sweater! Last week after 5 zippers all different sizes/colours and 2 attempts to sew up the final zipper it was done! Away went the linty black wool jacket I have been wearing all winter to be replaced by this warm and stylish sweater! I have to say this is my favorite sweater I have ever knit! The free pattern from Canadianliving.com was fantastic and easy. I used a 12 stitch gauge yarn, bigger than they suggest, but I adjusted my needles to obtain the gauge (3.75mm and 4.5mm needles). It fits perfectly. Out of the four of us who tackled this project two more have yet to be completed! I will post them all once they are finished; it will be quite the sight!
