I have been posting images all over of my finished Worsted Boxy (in DK!) because I love it. If you read the blog regularly, you will know that I recently visited the cooler climates of the world ie. London and Paris. I wore this sweater in many different outfits, in many different settings. It just seemed to work with everything. Long grey dress and polka dot stockings. Jeans and tuque. Black skirt with lime green undershirt. It just works!
Pattern: Worsted Boxy
Designer: Joji Locatelli
Yarn: Lincraft Lima (discontinued)
Let me tell you whats good about this pattern: The designer did the knitter a great service in offering seamed and in the round versions of this sweater. The pattern is really clearly written and quite nice to work with.
Extra bits you should know before casting on: I imagine most people would choose the seamless version because, let's face it, seaming sucks! However, after knitting the whole body of the seamless version, I tinked my little heart out and decided to have a go with the knitting machine I recently acquired. This meant making the two panels individually and joining the sides as per the pattern. I was limited to how many stitches I could cast on (110) so I had to go with that and hope for the best. In addition, I used a DK weight yarn as opposed to the worsted weight yarn that is desired. For this reason, I can't actually comment on the finished sizing of the pattern. I do know that there is another version of this pattern for a lighter fingering weight yarn called Boxy, if that interests you!
