Tomorrow I’m taking a sweater class, based on Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Percentage System.
I’m pretty excited. I’m knitting with Cascade’s Sierra, it’s a 80% cotton, 20% wool, worsted weight yarn in a really pretty blue (color #21).
I’m making a close fitting (1″ positive ease) extra long sleeved pullover. The bottom hem has twisted ribbing for 4″, and the sleeves will have the same. It’s 15″ from underarm to waist, it’s meant to hit just at the hip bone. It’s long enough to cover the waistband of whatever bottoms I’ve got on, but only just.
