The Pyorre Sweater

This gorgeous sweater pattern is The Pyorre by Mari Muinonen, and was featured in the fall issue of The Twist Collective. I'm showing my version first. I ordered the yarn that the pattern called for in September (which I rarely do) and began knitting in late October. I finished on Dec. 21st. It came out beautifully, and is by FAR the best sweater I've knitted to date. It ended up a perfect fit on D, and was his Anniversary gift this year. The pocket was my biggest drama!! I carefully block the sweater body, and the pocket. I laid the pocket it out, and carefully measured out the center and pinned it into place. I delicately stitched it into place so the stitches looked invisible and there was no sign of puckering. I was so proud!! It was perfect! THEN, I picked up the sweater....and realized I had sewn it onto the back of the sweater....

I was too shocked and devasted to scream, but I wanted to cry. I wished for a high cliff that I could just throw myself off of. After some deep breathing and meditation, I carefully removed the pocket, turned the sweater over and repeated the whole thing onto the front. Whalla!!

These are the pics from the Twist Collective pattern that show a much more accurate color. My camera is so awful at getting good, true color sometimes. D says my batteries are too low or something. Dunno.

This turned out great. I can't believe that part about the pocket!
