FO: Child’s Placket-Neck Pullover

18 Sep

I’ve made this before, and, just like last time, I made it wrong. (Except right.) See, the original instructions in the book (which I have) resulted in an off-center placket. I knew that errata existed somewhere on the internet and I found what I thought was it–but, in fact, it was merely the original instructions, which I blithely followed.

Just like last time, I do not care. It’s a roomy pullover, perfect for a child who haaaates having things pulled over her head, likes to walk around with sweaters and shirts half on, and for our chilly almost-autumn weather.

This is local yarn from Purl’s Yarn Emporium in Asheville, acquired  in February when I was presenting a paper on a Hannah More novel. (I like to cheat on my current project with didactic fiction.) It’s delightfully sheepy. (The yarn.) Dear Purl’s Yarn Emporium: I’m sorry Abby dumped a pot of dirt on your floor.

BIG NEWS. Two and a half years later, and Chris and I are going on a honeymoon. He has a week off in October, which happily coincides with a month when my parents will be staying only a few hours away. They’re going to stay with Abby for two nights while we do it up right at Niagara Falls. It’ll be the first time we’ve been on vacation together since 2010.

Pattern: Child’s Placket Neck Pullover

Yarn: Something local to Asheville, NC. I am the worst about saving yarn bands.

Notes and Mods: If you make this, be sure you have the errata–unless you like asymmetry, which I kind of do. But this would need to be even more asymmetrical to look intentional. Luckily, neither I nor Abby cares.
