Wicked done and I love it!


Here is my Wicked. It was such a fun & quick knit and I'm really happy with the final fit. It's snug, but I can easily put a tshirt on underneath it.

I used Bare Superwash from Knitpicks that I dyed myself. I did more waist shaping than is on the original pattern & made it about an inch longer, finishing with the ribbing instead of the seed stitch to add interest since I left off the pocket. I also did 5.5" sleeves for that little extra something.

I might do another one with the pocket, but I wanted this one to be 'work appropriate'.

More details on my blog.
