Whitehorse Knit Sweater

I'm sloooowly working through my yarn stash! This sweater has been on my list for a while, and I was determined to wear it this fall as a transition piece.

I couldn't get my little bobbles to pop out onto the right side and stay there. Anyone know a trick for that?

Pattern: Whitehorse by Caitlin Hunter
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Rialto DK in Emerald

I bought this yarn at the Anything Fiber Sale earlier this year for a total steal: $37. I took $40 in cash with me, vowing to spend no more than that. Success! The other $3 was spent on a Malabrigo book.

The only change I made to the pattern was to extend the body length by quite a few inches. Regular sweaters already look cropped on me, and I wanted one that I could layer and wear solo.

The color on the photo I posted on Instagram looks more blue than green, but it's a nice close up of the yoke. The knit went pretty fast, and working the chart wasn't as tedious as I thought.

This is also one of those sweaters where I worked on the yoke at home, then worked most of the reverse stockinette body at stitch group. I love sweaters that have a combination of super simple and a bit more difficult.
