• strategically covering up the miscrossed cable? (no snark intended, just wondering!) - aswim in knits
  • You got it! Normally, I would never leave a miscrossed cable, but I didn't notice until it was way too late to fix! Also, I kind of love the close up of the coffee cup against the cables. It WAS real coffee!

Hedge Fence is knitted in the round, with sleeve caps worked flat and sewn in. All 12 sizes (31" - 55") are individually charted, although the pattern text includes several pages on how to modify the garment to fit your body.

    Wow Elinor, that is gorgeous! It looks like a great fit on him as well. I like the tailored look of it.

    Thanks everyone!

    All I have to say is that he'd better wear the hell out of it. :)

    I remember when you started this! It fits amazingly, and what I'm most impressed with is the neckline, which often looks like a major afterthought in sweaters like this, but it very nicely incorporated here.

    Holy crap, Matt would love this. I don't know if I'd love KNITTING it for him, but it's seriously amazing.

    @Minty: What, like 5 years ago? It feels like it, at least. Part of the problem was that I designed as I went and had to rip the neck once before I got it right. Stupid. Always plan first. It was a huge PITA to get the neck to do that in all 12 sizes, but I'm really proud that I got it to work!!

    @Bertha: How tall is he? Because that's really the key to loving/hating the knitting! :)

    Fantastically gorgeous!
    and I too am in LOVE with the neck - it's really the first thing that people who don't know a thing about knitting notice.

    I love how relaxed it looks at the bottom, like it won't ride up. Nice work!

    I just found your gorgeous Hedge Fence Sweater. This is exquisite! I love how you neatly merged the center cable into the ribbed edges and I LOVE that you placed a whole other large cable along the side seam. Genius!
