Ginny's Blue Jeans Icelandic Sweater

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I wanted to use more colors in the yoke so I broke the pattern up into smaller sections and used 5 colors - white, ash, heaven blue, lapis blue and navy. I especially like the subtle change between the white and ash because it shows the contrast of the darker colors well while adding a bit of interest.. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The hardest part for me was reading the chart. I haven't made a multi color pattern since the 80's and the prescription in my glasses has increased over the years. To make it easier I printed out the chart and wrote the colors to be used in each box using just 1 or 2 capital letters so I could read them easily. The other advice I would give is to check each row for accuracy before going on to the next row. It's a lot easier to take out 1 row than several.
