A Finished Flax

Jellybean’s Flax sweater has been finished with the knitting for several days but it’s still “a block away” as the Knitmore Girls say. And since my shingles have sidelined my knitting I thought I’d share this in its current state.  

Pattern:  Flax by Tin Can Knits from their Simple Collection

Needles: U.S. 6 and 8 needles

Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Worsted in Pageant

Size: 2-3 years

mods: none

I’m hoping a good blocking will highlight the fantastic ridge detail of the garter section on the arms. I used 216 grams of yarn or just over 4 skeins of yarn. I’m glad I chose the 2-3 year old size so that Jellybean will get more wear out of it. He’s almost a year old and firmly in 24 month clothing. Now I just need to find a time where it’s not too hot and Jellybean is in the mood to model this FO after its blocking bath. Cross your fingers for that perfect storm will you?

Happy Knitting!
