Back in the prehistoric year 2014, I designed my very first graded sweater pattern. I took a trip down memory lane and revamped this free pattern.
What: La grasse Matinée / Own pattern
How: Circular needles 3.0 ja 2.5 mm
From: Rowan Fine Tweed, 274 g
I didn't knit another sweater but I cleaned up the pattern to the layout I use now. And since I don't like letting myself take it easy, I re-calculated the pattern for all the nine sizes I use these days. Back then, the pattern had "only" sizes S-M-L-XL.
La grasse matinée is an easy sweater and a great pattern for your first top down sweater project. It has 3/4 raglan sleeves and the body has no waist shaping. The hem and sleeve cuffs have a pretty little row of eyelets before few rows of garter stitch.
It was fun reminiscing this old pattern. It's been just few years but my, how I've grown as a designer - the techincal skills to grade patterns and to make clear schematics. Not to mention photography skills!
I decided it would be fun to take new pics with the same hairdo and clothing. Can you tell the difference in anything else except my blonder hair?
