STANLEY

I used a 2/8 (4ply , fingering weight, 400m to 100gm) pure wool yarn. I knitted it on the Silver reed 830 fine gauge machine. The tension dial was 7 and 1 dot and the gauge was 35 st and 48 rws per 10cm (4" ). The pink stripe came about because I used the pink for scrap top and bottom when doigng the swatch and realised it went well with this green.
2x2 rib for neckband, joined on machine.

Set in sleeves. The whole sweater was sewn together using mattress sticth.
