I am working on my second Customfit sweater. My first was a classic V-Neck pull over which can be seen at the end of this post. I could hardly wait to start my second. I bought some wonderful Wollmeise DK yarn from Germany. I then decided that I wanted to do a classic crew neck cardigan based on the Cypress cardigan in Amy Herzog's book Knit to Flatter.
I swatched up the yarn and got the information I needed. The cool thing about Customfit is that you don't have to hit a gauge. The program gives you a pattern based on your gauge and your measurements. I printed off the pattern and inserted the lace in the back. After about 10 inches I did not like how it was turning out. So I ripped it all out. I wish I had taken a picture of it before I did.
I then thought about what I really would want to wear and all of my favorite sweaters are pull-overs. I also thought of the Hermione's Everyday Socks that I had made. I really liked the texture the pattern had made. I swatched that up and really liked it. So I began knitting the back. After about 10 inches I did not like how it was turning out. To me it was too busy or something. I really can't put my finger on it. So I ripped it back to the ribbing.
I am now about 10 inches up the back and I like it. I think this is what the sweater will be.
