Killing Sweater!

 Well, I finished it! This is me doing my best Sarah Lund pose in my fabulous new sweater. It is a very close copy of the one Lund wears for most of Series III. The yarn and pattern came from Scandinavian Knitting Design - they also have a pattern for the chevron design from the first three episodes. Very tempting! I enjoyed doing the colourwork and am very pleased with the garment.
 
The Jan Sweater was knitted up ages ago but lay in the basket waiting to be sewn up for months. I am so glad that I finally got around to it.  This is a lovely design and a very good fit.  The Drops Baby Alpaca Silk yarn works well with the design. It is a good fit and very soft.

Yet another Belmondo shawl. This time it is knitted from a single skein of Manos de Urugauy Silk Blend. The colours are beautiful and it feels so soft and silky.
These little Holly Leaf pins are for little Christmas gifts.  They don't take long to make and are very cute.  I am using Rowan Fine Tweed as the colours and texture seemed just perfect for a slightly rustic look.

Liz, that killing sweater is awesome, and very covetable! The impression of Sarah Lund is also very convincing! I wish I could knit like that.

Great sweater! Very impressive. I'm trying to knit one myself but am having trouble with the arms. The star pattern I'm using doesn't fit into the number of stitches I need to knit the arms, and increasing every 4 cm as per my pattern makes it even trickier. I'm using a pattern from Scandinavian Knitting Design, but it doesn't explain how to deal with this. Any tips?

Hi Helen,
I had exactly the same problem as you until I worked out that the pattern is not supposed to fit exactly. I assume it probably did fit in the original design in the size it was first knitted in but not necessarily in other sizes. If you look closely at the original Killing sweater the star repeat doesn't fit exactly either. What I did was treat the back front and sleeve sections separately when it came to following the charts , just making sure that the pattern was centred correctly on each section. It actually doesn't seem to matter much to the finished sweater. Hope this helps!
