We got our homework assignment a couple of days ago. Swatches for the next two garments; one with puffy sleeves and the other with dolman sleeves.
Here’s my unwashed swatch for the puffy sleeves. If it looks familiar then perhaps you’ve seen it in Knitting Lingerie Style. It’s the Shaped Lace T (aka Krista). I nixed Classic Elite Provence and exchanged it for Cascade Sierra. Sierra is so much softer and definitely a better choice.
My dolman sleeved garment will look something like this Stanwyck sweater in Rowan’s latest book. However the body will be worked in a lace pattern. I wasted many hours this past weekend looking for the perfect yarn but in the end settle on Knit Picks Gloss in Dusk. Since I’m not sure how the dolman will look I didn’t want to sink too much money into yarn for this project.
