knitted :: for fall (Perry Street Rugby)

knitted :: Perry Street Rugby

When I saw Kirsten Kapur’s new Perry Street Rugby , I jumped at the chance to test-knit. I loved everything about it – the gartery goodness, the fat cables, the slouchy, cozy styling, the long reverse-rib sleeves. I was also totally crazy for the colors Kirsten made hers in – grey and taupe, my two favorite neutrals. I immediately ordered the exact same yarn, in the exact same colors (Cascade Eco Cloud in 1804 and 1810).

I went back and forth about which size to knit – the original was done with 3″ ease, so I was considering knitting the 40″ size, for a similar fit. Kirsten suggested I might want to consider the 38″ (1″ positive ease), and I am *so* glad that’s what I went with. I typically make close-fitting sweaters, so the looser fit is already a stretch for me – I think any bigger would’ve overwhelmed me. As is, I wasn’t entirely sure it was super-flattering on me, and I was considering trying to shrink it a bit in hot water, but it’s grown on me.

Gah, I love that fat cable. There’s a matching one on the back, but I didn’t get a good shot of it. Instead, I got a bunch of unflattering shots and also discovered I had a leaf in my hair for all of them.

Gotta say, I’m going to love wearing this for fall. Thank you, Kirsten, for another slammin’ pattern, and for the opportunity to test knit it!
