1. What's the pattern?
True Friend, by Veera Välimäki; from the pattern collection Interpretations Vol. 2. I found this pattern by using Ravelry and searching for a sweater pattern using a fingering-weight yarn in multiple colours, and the pictures on Ravelry are so striking! It's an oversize sweater, fitted at the shoulders but loose nearer the bottom hem, with a most interesting construction method. And check out some of the colour combinations in the projects on Ravelry!
2. Which yarn did you choose?
I'm trying to destash some yarn I bought in China nearly 10 years ago (eep!). I was really into making colourwork mittens then, so I stocked up on this quite nice stuff in four colours (two balls each), but then my enthusiasm waned because of the fiddliness. So I don't have enough of one colour to make a sweater, but putting all the balls together, I think I have enough yardage. I'd better have enough yardage, LOL. I'm not even a hundred percent sure of the fibre composition for the yarn as I can't read Chinese characters. It does say 100% something, and it also features the Woolmark logo, as well as a picture of a ram.
My MC is red, my CC is blue, and also likely white when I run out of blue.
3. What size are you making?
I'm making the medium (the third size), because I was too excited to gauge swatch. I probably should have swatched, because some of the sweater is knit flat and some in the round, and my gauge is never the same with both. If I swatched, I could change needle size to get the correct gauge in the different portions, but excitement won out over good sense. I am hoping the oversize nature of the sweater will compensate for any difference in gauge I may have, but I think I will be lucky if this sweater turns out to fit in some capacity.
Not many so far -- I have plans to use three colours rather than two, because I am limited by the quantities of yarn in my possession, but so far I haven't reached the point where I've had to incorporate a third colour.
5. Would you knit this again?
I really think this is worth answering twice, the first time when I'm in the beginning stages, and the second when I'm staring at a finished object. So far, I am loving this pattern, but knitting a fingering-weight sweater, never mind an oversize one, is nearly as large an undertaking as a Ph.D. thesis (trust me, I speak from experience). At this stage, the answer is probably not, even though I'm having fun knitting it.
