Lilac Pullover - Finished!

This morning I sewed the sleeves to the body.  It is the only bit of finishing that I have to do on this pullover as everything is knit in the round.  Maybe on the next one I'll try knitting the sleeves from the top down.  I've been toying with the idea for the last two pullovers.  I've only done top down set in sleeves a few times, but I really like how they come out - when they are done correctly.  The only reason I haven't done that on this top is the lace patterning on the sleeve.

Pattern:  Ladies Sweater - 1838 from Moments No. 005
Yarn:  SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Fino
Needles:  US 2.5 (3.0 mm) and US 3 (3.25 mm)


  1. I do all my sweaters with the sleeves top down. When you are finished with the sleeves, you are done!

    1. Yes :-). I am a huge fan of not having to do any finishing work. The only reason I haven't done that here is the lace pattern, but I'll probably tackle it. I charted the upper sleeve with the decreases, so it shouldn't be hard to reverse it.
