Knitted Two-Tone Tunic Reviewed by Rana Rene on 2012-09-12 ****
I just finished my first knitted sweater and I must say the instructions are pretty easy to follow, but for me the neck shaping and the armholes shaping where kind of hard, I am learning how to knit by books and videos, I can't ask to a person I know because none of my closest people know how to knit sometimes the instructions weren't that clear. I actually recommend to check this pattern.

This was my first knitting project, I am an adult. My mother is an excellent knitter so I was blessed in having someone to run to when I needed help. I did not use lion brand wool - I used a different brand of super bulky wool that I found on sale. I found the pattern easy to follow. There were only a few times that I had some confusion but if I didn't have my mother, I am sure I would have found the info on the internet. Things like how to set in the sleeves, what they mean by every fourth row - does that start on row one or row four for counting, little things like that. For a beginner pattern I wish they took the extra space to include that kind of information. I have it done though and I am really pleased by the outcome. It looks like a sweater. It is warm and it fits. The neck is tight to get over my head though - if I were to make it again I would not decrease that last little bit as much as the pattern calls for. I also made my arms longer than they called for. It has made me want to do another sweater and I have my next pattern picked out. If you know nothing about knitting it is a good place to start and although it is not the most beautiful sweater I own it is not ugly but quite nice. I would wear it in public.:)

I made this sweater with a single color. The pattern was very easy to follow and it only took me 3 days to complete. Very warm!

This is the first sweater I ever made, and although I've made several other garments since, this sweater is my favourite. I made mine all one colour - navy - and it is so warm and cozy! I'm planning to make another soon even though I currently have a few projects on the go!

This is one of my favorite patterns from lionbrand.com...have gotten lots of complements.

Easy to follow pattern, goes together well and is quick to complete.

Try knitting both sleeves at the same time using two balls of yarn...that way you know they match exactly on increases and length.

Washes in the machine in a lingere bag and then out of the bag and into the dryer with an anti-static sheet. Wears great.

I've made this pattern twice using Homespun, just have to adjust the needle size for the correct gauge. I've purchased yarn for two more sweaters since Homespun has such a range of colors.

Thanks,
Terry
