Phyllo Yoked Pullover

Wow, two new FOs in just a little over a week!

Lucky for me my husband/FO photographer will be back soon, so I'll hopefully have not so crooked pictures in the near future! But you get the idea...

Pattern:Phyllo Yoked Pullover from Knitting Nature
Yarn: Rowan Calmer in Laurel, 8 balls for the smallest size at a tighter gauge
Notes: This one was another lesson in yarn buying - I kind of forgot that knitting something at a different gauge will require a different amount of yarn.  And it didn't help that I purchased a discontinued color of Calmer online and didn't start the sweater until about a year later.  So I ended up with this, but luckily Sarah came to my rescue with the right dye lot! 

Good thing that I persevered - I really love the sweater!  It fits great, and the yarn is so soft and comfortable.  The yoke pattern was a bit confusing to me, but with the help of the picture in the book I was able to figure it out.  I highly recommend this knit!

Look at that drape! What a gorgeous sweater.

But the bigger news is that hubby will be home soon, yay!

It's lovely! Calmer is a great yarn for our climate, too. Nice job.

Beautiful knitting, fabulous fit. And the new yarn looks like it is a perfect match!

Will it ever get cool enough to wear? These 100+ temps are a bit much!

It looks very lovely. After seeing yours in person, I found myself contemplating the pattern. Someday! too much on my knitting plate right now.

I've finally gotten around to reading the blogroll again. Your Phyllo looks GREAT! I'm really tempted to make one for myself. (You'll be proud of me--I just started a sweater this past weekend--in cotton! I'll let you know how it turns out.)
