A while back my daughter/in house model asked for a sweater that was cropped with a cowl neck. I had some yarn she had picked out for another sweater using Ultra Alpaca Fine (what was I thinking with that weight yarn for a sweater).
I took her measurements, plugged them into Custom Fit then we created. Since there isn't a cowl option or a cropped option, we had to improvise. She also wanted really long sleeves. Let me tell you, knitting this was a labor of love.
You can't see it but there is a cable detail on the side seams - I knit this seamlessly which was perfect. To get the cowl option to work, we did a boat neck with a bit of a scoop. Then I did the ribbing and increased here and there and also increased the needle sizes from a 5 to an 8 working up as I went along. The whole thing was knit on 3's.
No sooner than it was block, she had styled it and it was worn to school - her own customized Custom Fit. Quite a success.
