Another giant project is finally off my needles!
I started this sweater in July when I was still pregnant and it has taken me forever to finish! Even though it's such a simple and understated garment knitted mostly in Stockinette stitch, the loose fit means there's quite a lot of fabric to knit. Also the needle size is quite small (3.5mm) so that makes the number of stitches to knit uncountable. I'm extremely happy about the result so it was definitely worth the effort!
I knitted mine using two lace weight yarns (one white, one black) held together to get a nice marled effect. The result reminds me of the noise TV screens used to get when I was a child. In Finland we called it "snowfall". The only change I made was to knit the pullover in a round. The math behind calculating the side details and increases when knitting in round was really easy. I don't think that the lack of side seams makes any difference.
Now I just need to wait for warmer weathers to get to wear it!
