Thermal Scoop Neck Pullover DONE!

Knitty- Inspired Thermal Scoop Neck Sweater in Alpaca

My Knitty-inspired Thermal Scoop Neck Pullover is finally finished! It came out wonderfully. The knitted pattern gives the sweater the sense of soft alpaca long underwear albeit sexier with it’s side shaping.

The biggest hurdle with this sweater was the thin alpaca yarn that I used. I had bought it at Silk City Fibers where it was a special sample Unfortunately it required a small size 2 needle. (UGH!) As a result, this pullover took about 7 weeks to complete despite almost single minded knitting focus. Since I use a row counter to ensure that the front and back of the sweater match, this sweater had more rows than any other including the sweaters for my husband and dad.

I guess you could say that it contained a lot of love in terms of the hours of knitting.
