My lace and I aren’t dating. It is more like a casual summer fling. Feel better?
So Green Gable is done. Ta da!
What a satisfying and easy knit. I added several modifications after lurking in the KAL to try and fit my body better. I think it turned out really well and I am very pleased.
Pattern: Green Gable
Source: Zephyr Style
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, 3 skeins Willow Leaf
Size: M (with modifications)
Mods: Many. Knitted 2 extra sets of the C&D rows, knit 5 decreases about an inch apart starting about 3 inches under the armholes, 4 increases an inch apart starting an inch after the decreases, used short row shaping for the bust, knit 6 rows of ribbing at the bottom of the shirt instead of 3.
Notes: I believe this is my first really wearable knit. Really quick and easy, I love how it is knit top down and how easy it was to modify for my body type.
So there you go. One headless close up before I go:

i hope mine turns out that well! thanks for posting the waist shaping info… that’s where i’m stuck right now.
gorgeous! what a beautiful sweater. you must have done a fabulous job with the adjustments because it looks like it fits perfectly. it looks gorgeous on you! x
Your sweater looks great! Have fun doing the Trellis Scarf, I picked the same thing for The Amazing Lace!
That looks adorable on you! Your mods are great, it fits perfectly.
It looks amazing – without the mods the Tee would look awful. And I agree – knitting it from the top down makes it VERY easy to modify.
Very pretty! Great job on the modifications, isn’t it amazing when you ‘tailor’ a knit perfectly for your body?
Hehe, MY mom was giving me the lecture about snuggling my husband while watching movies and not just knitting.
Your sweater looks nice! How is it that people knit sweaters so fast. I don’t get it.
That turned out so well! That color looks really good on you 🙂
that is fabulous and i love the color! great job. 🙂
Very nice! It’s great that you were able to modify it just for you you you. I’m going to be doing a tank shortly with short-row bust shaping. And I really don’t know what I’m doing (I’m kind of making it up as I go). So maybe I’ll be asking you for help…
It is beautiful! A fitting job very well done for sure!
Very very nice. And lace is much easier to take care of than a boyfriend.
What a great job & it looks great on you! Not everyone can wear that color green, but on you it’s perfect:)
