I found SWS on sale at $2.77 a skein and wanted to knit this Nordic Tunic from Vogue Knitting Fall 2008 (one of my all-time favorite issues), which was designed with the same yarn.
As usual, Vogue Knitting has TONNES of errors. Remember to read the errata before starting!
Didn’t like the yarn. It is like roving and splits like crazy!
Didn’t like the yoke construction. I had no idea how to measure the sweater and wondering whether I should add/decrease any length to the sleeves and body. It was also really heavy, which made the tension for colorwork a little bit challenging to be consistent.
However, I did like the minimal number of edges to sew!
Lengthened the body a bit
For neck portion, did a k1p1 twisted rib
Finally finished and it fits perfectly!
It's a bit too hot to wear it now but packed away in a safe place for next year!
