Slytherin Quidditch Sweater

I dug up this project from a few years ago and thought it’d be fun to add to my collection here. I haven’t made many sweaters in my time knitting, but I must say that they’re pretty fun once you’re done, since you can actually go and wear them around. This sweater took ~3 months to make, and it’s pretty cozy. I’m kind of guessing since it was a while ago, but I’m pretty sure I made it on US size 6 needles. I used the pattern here as a guideline and modified it so that it fit better as I went, as well as added the silver lines around the waist and wrists. No fancy circular knitting or anything, just 4 individual flat pieces stitched together. I don’t play around with ribbing very often, but I am a big fan of it. Why? Mostly because it magically makes a piece of clothing fit the person wearing it by making it super stretchy. Also, I learned that you can change colors with ease; even though you’re using reverse stockinette in between the stockinette ribs sticking out, there isn’t a noticeable color change if you just make one row straight through with knit stitch:

The knit stitch row just hides itself in the back and the reverse stockinette resumes its place in front of the knit stitches. This makes for a wonky line on the inside, but hey, when does the part people don’t see matter?

So I guess that’s all there is to say on this one, as always, comments and questions appreciated below!
