the lucky green sweater (neulottu naisen jakku)

It’s done! And it’s cozy and happy and GREEN. This particular sweater was knit with the help of a beach in Mexico, and then a bunch of episodes of Mad Men and (fittingly) Weeds.

Pattern: Neulottu-Naisen-Jakku.  Ravelry user Lilia translated the written pattern notes from the original Finnish. I added some English translations to the pattern charts and put everything together in this pdf. If you want additional photos and notes, here is Neulottu Naisen Jakku’s ravelry pattern page.

Modifications: I had to make the sleeves a couple inches longer than the pattern called for and I used the same size needles throughout.

Yarn: 5.5 skeins of Peace Fleece Worsted in Shaba

    i love the gorgeous green color, the word VERDANT comes to mind.

    i am incapable of knitting sweaters, i can only do the simple knit & purl combo for a scarf. crocheting is more my forte.

    great job!

      oooo verdant IS a good word for the color. I should’ve used that in the sweater’s name. Don’t be too modest about your scarves…I saw some on your blog and they’re beautiful!
