Beaner's Fair Isle sweater

Beaner's Fair Isle sweater

Pattern: Dale of Norway 100th Anniversary Norwegian Ski Team
Yarn: Dale of Norway Falk in pink, ivory, and tan heather
Needles: Addi 1s and 2s
Mods: Ummm - the whole thing? I did this as a steeking class and the original child's sweater pattern came as a pull-over only. Soooo . . . I adapted the original pattern but followed the directions for the woman's zip-up cardi. The results? Not too bad. I forgot to begin with the smaller needles on the cuff of the second sleeve and also forgot to use them to pick up the stitches for the placket. Additionally, I ended the cast-on stitches for the second placket on the picot hem, so I had to rip out part of the placket to make it fit the the other side. Okay, so I didn't really rip them out, I did a slight bias corner fold and will let Mom sort it out when she puts the zipper in. It's not done per se, but my part of it is done. Mind the pins!
