Colorblock Sweater with Oaklynn from Made for Mermaids.

I already shared about the Made for Mermaids Oaklynn sweater I made for my daughter...but I’m going to be using this pattern a ton, so here I am sharing it again.

I had dreams of this sweater I found on Pinterest and found some scraps of waffle knit in my stash that I could use to make it happen.

I used the crew neck color block with the waistband and cuffs to achieve the same Colorblocking effect as my inspiration.

I followed the pattern without modifications. My only tip is to practice adjusting your machine settings to avoid the waviness in the seams if you are using waffle knit. I didn’t test ahead and I cannot steam out those waves…but I did perfect it on the next sweater I made.
