New and Improved

I’ve just finished the body for the re-knit of my Hourglass Sweater. Let’s check out the fit, shall we?

This is the original Hourglass.

The original Hourglass Sweater

Note the excess fabric around the bustline and the hips. Not to mention the bagginess of the sleeves.

Here’s the way it looks now:

The body of the new Hourglass Sweater

It fits snugly in the bust, smoothly through the waist, and hangs neatly at the hips with no excess. Much better, eh?

    Very nice! Love the color – so pretty and feminine!

    Are oyu using Cash Iroha? If so, let me know because I have a question about # skeins for you.

    Did you make this pattern up? This looks really great. Where can I get a copy of the pattern?

    BTW, I really appreciated your notes on Eunny Jang’s shawl… you made that a much more accessible project for me! Thanks!

    So pretty! I’ve been wanting to make the Hourglass for a while, but haven’t steeled myself for the math to make it customizable.
