Celtic is done!

DSCF0163

This is Celtic from Rowan Magazine 41. It wasn't an easy knit and I am glad that it is over. There was errata that Rowan didn't post but I found it on someone elses blog. Here it is in case you decide to do this sweater.

Rowan said:

"Unfortunately there is a print error on the key for this pattern and the upside down black triangle should be inc 2 purlwise. The dec 7 uses 7 sts but actually dec's 6 sts"

So, if you decide to do this sweater keep this in mind.

I am now working on the Bohus sweater Forest Darkness.

I am starting to get a little fed up with these magazines - no errata and of course, the infamous clips on the models so you can't see that the sweater fits like a bag without them. (Can you tell I'm about to frog a Vogue pattern?)

Sheesh.

Hope you are well!

Gorgeous! As always. :)

Ooooooh! It's very pretty! Janis, please tell us that it fits like a dream and that the end result was worth the knitting agony? I've made things before in which the process was TOO MUCH and thus forever prohibited ever being able to enjoy the item itself. Usually have to give those away so they don't waste closet space. I hope that's not the case in this case!

It does fit like a dream and is beautiful and worth the effort. I can say that now that I am done with it! :--)

See, now aren't you sorry for all those mean things you said to that sweater when you were knitting it? :-) It's incredible -- I can't wait to see it on you!

Ok, UNCLE! I give up. How do you make the inc 2 purlwise and have it not look like a tangled knot? Heeeellllllppp! :0)

Janis said...

Just do it. It will be fine.
