Breaking ground – Hey June Tallinn sweater

To be honest Adrianna and Hey June isn’t new to me. I have known her and her patterns for almost as long as I have sewn with PDF-patterns (a.k.a almost a year now), but for a long time there was one big problem – my paypal 😀 And then she came out with the Tallinn sweater. If you aren’t familiar with me then you are probably thinking what is so special about that Tallinn sweater. Wait for a second and I’ll tell you 😉
Tallinn is a small capital in Northern Europe, for a country called Estonia. And if you are still wondering, this is the city I was born and still live. So it was natural for me to buy this pattern and make it 🙂
I found out that turtlenecks and cowls aren’t my thing so on my final you can’t see any of them. Instead I used cowl neck cutting line and added binding. My favorite thing is that I didn’t need to add length to sleeves, they were exactly the length I liked and I have long arms!
My dream was to have first photos of this sweater in beautiful streets of Tallinn, but well.. Life got on way, so instead you’ll see that beautiful corner of our apartment 😀 Next Tallinn sweater will be seen on beautiful background 😉
