Oh, hello there. As you may be able to tell from the dorky smile on my face, I am so pleased with my Tinder sweater, knit with @alafoss Lett lopi in this delightful rust colour. Pattern by @brooklyntweed worked up like a dream. I added extra length to the sleeves and body, resulting in the need for two extra button holes. I used a three-stitch button hole because the two-stitch looked inordinately tiny for the width of the button band and didn’t appear to have a lot of stretch. This will become a favourite go-to sweater for cool spring and fall weather. Thanks to @val.knitting for the photos.
P.S. photos taken pre-COVID-19. Be smart. Stay home.
