My punk-est KO



I loved making this sweater. While it may not have the Jolly Roger on it or anything, I did let my honey design the octopus himself. Really, who chooses an octopus for the front and center image of a sweater.

I knit it in the fashion of the Sweater Workshop by Jacqueline Fee - the sleeves were each knit in the round, and then the body was started at the bottom hem and knit in the round until I got to the point to join the arms to the body. Then the whole thing was knit in the round with the raglan decreases and neckline and the top of the image all taken into consideration.

I feel that since it technically wasn't too difficult and still resulted in a gorgeous sweater that my love wears whenever he gets a chance, it defnitely counts as my punk pride.
