I finally got around to knitting this beautiful sweater named after our town. I used leftover yarn from the Shore Street hat that I made a few years ago by Kate Davies. That was such an enjoyable slipped stitch knitting project, and it left me with 90 g of several different colors of Herriot. This sweater is actually designed for DK weight yarn, but it worked well in the worsted weight. The gauge swatch was definitely key!
I loved having two color knitting in almost every round of this sweater, and I never had to work more than 2 colors in a single round. Because of the short length and short sleeves, it was a very quick knit. There was surprisingly little finish work, so it came together quickly and was able to be worn almost immediately.
I would love to make this sweater again using one of our beautiful yarns from Urth or Kelbourne Woolens.
