Presenting my latest FO! I am so excited about this one. The pattern is Edie and available in the LOFT collection of patterns from Brooklyn Tweed. Really, it should have been done awhile ago. I have no excuse. Despite the fingering weight gauge, there is a lot of stockinette stitch and only a bit of cabling in it. And short short sleeves…really, no excuse here. The yarn was just lovely to work with – light and lofty, as it is named. I loved the tiered cables that start on the front and continue around to the back. These were a simple chart but a nice affect.
The sweater is short…which is obvious in the model photo. I would suggest adding a couple of inches to the body of the pattern, and you could easily knit it with longer sleeves. I used only 3 skeins for my size (34″) instead of the 4 that the pattern called for, so the extra inches wouldn’t have required more yarn than the pattern indicates.
