and then there was After Five

Untitled-1 copy 2

Originally published by “that magazine”. I still don’t have my sample back… however, I am very fortunate that the sample size usually requested in magazines is my size.

And that means I can play and have fun with the sweater in my own terms and styling before they create their beautiful layouts and styling.

This pattern was edited by Joeli, who edits a lot of my patterns and is an eagle-eyed editor to boot. And as 6months since publishing date have gone by, I have every right in the book to do as I wish with my pattern.

So here you have it.

    Your photos are way better anyway – you can actually see and appreciate the detail in the design. You don’t need to be on a merry-go-round! :)

    I agree with All Irish.  I saw that layout when the pattern was released, and I didn’t give the pattern a second look.  Your photos show off all the beautiful detailing and shaping :)

    That’s the kind of sweater I would wear every day. Especially in that shade of red. I hope you get it back.

    I like that – might make that before Chambourcin after all

    Very lovely! I need to get over my fear of using fingering wt for clothing (you know, besides socks and fingerless gloves and that one infinity scarf I knitted that took ages!) I hope you get it back. I hope I get my bag back too!

    Definitely going to knit this! Might turn it into a v-neck and keep it fitted around the waist but add super duper bust shaping. It is such a lovely pattern and I do love that red! Might hunt down some Wollmeise in a similar colour…
