This january I knit up this beautiful sweater. For christmas I had gotten a gift card at garnkorgen.se, a swedish yarn site and this yarn is part of what I got. In total I used 5 skeins of Cascade 220 fingering. Or maybe not 5 complete skeins but I still needed the whole fifth for the grey. This sweater is a bottom up knit and it was sooo fun to knit that I completed it in less than two weeks of evening time knitting. It’s too hot to wear it in July even in Sweden but it is one of my favourite sweaters and I really love the top part and how it’s perfect at the shoulders and not too tight around the body.
I’m thinking of using this pattern to make more sweaters, maybe with another pattern around the yoke. Maybe for my current Tour de Fleece spinning project?
