Knife Grinder's Daughter
During college I spent my holiday breaks working in the family business, which is to say that I was on a factory floor sharpening industrial knives. When the weather was cold I lived in crew-neck sweatshirts. Truth be told I miss those days. I still love the comfort of my old favorite sweatshirts. I designed this as a way to unite my past and present--a way to carry the crew necks with me.
The Knife Grinder’s Daughter is knit from the bottom up in the round. A continuous stripe of ribbing runs from the side hems up the body and down the sleeves to the wrists.

Still working through it. The bottom ribbing is a bit tedious but the pattern seems to be well written so far.

love the yarn knits up well. Would appreciate a pre-view of the pattern, I would not have chosen one knitting in the round!! Have divided it into front and back - think I will struggle when I get to the arm holes and the neck!! Love the pattern style
