Bubblegum pullover

Bubblegum pullover 1

Yarn:  Camellia Fiber Company CFC Merino Worsted – 2 1/2 skeins River Rock for MC (215 yds per skein) and partial skeins of Ivory and Bubblegum for the stripes

Pattern:  Little Lighthouse pullover, published in Swoon Maine – I substituted the fair isle on the yoke for 4-round stripes, and added 2-round stripes to the sleeves.  I originally intended to use these colors for the fair isle pattern, but when I got started, I could tell that they were too low value – that is, there wasn’t enough contrast between the colors.  I was afraid that the fair isle would just blur together and muddy the colors without showing any definite pattern.  So, I opted for stripes instead.

Size:  10 y/o – I needed a finished size between 10 and 12, and since my gauge was a little larger than that called for in the pattern, I knit size 10 and counted on it sizing up just a smidge.

Needles:  US 7s and US 6s (ribbing)
