Here is my completed Tubey from Knitty's Winter 05 issue. This was finished in early summer, but with autumn now here I have already worn it a fair few times and love it.
I knit this in DK weight, Sirdar Country Style (Highlands and Islands), and had to redo all the gauge calculations.
Some modifications were also worked:
- Size: knitted enough back to fit my shoulders, basing the width on the circumference of my arms. No bunching, perfect fitting shrug. I also lengthened the body tube until I was happy with the length.
- I liked the stripes on the arms, but not across the belly, so I frogged back and knitted the body tube plain (but boy was that boring!!!)
- I also knitted more than one row of garter stich at the end of the sleeves as it curled too much for my liking
I LOVE the neckline - might have to take it in a bit as the jumper stretches with wear - I have to see.
Finally, a sweater which allows me to wear necklaces and such - which is great because I dont have the chance often enough.
