This is the test knit sweater that I did for Laura Aylor. I haven’t lost the 30 pounds that I wanted to lose before taking a picture but . . I figured Laura needed a photo something within the next 5 years so . . here it is.
And one more view . . I was trying to show the cables on the sleeves . . I was not flexing my muscles.
I love this sweater so much. For the past 3 or 4 days, I try it on every morning .. I’m chomping at the bit to get to go somewhere so I can wear it but will wait til all the ice is gone.
I will be sure to let you all know when the sweater pattern is available. I will tell you the following:
- It’s a quick knit. It took me about 2 weeks and I knitted two pairs of mittens during that time (and did a few other things besides knit).
- It’s top down.
- There are no seams!
- The instructions are quite easy . . it was my first sweater and I had no problems.
- There’s very little counting. It was no problem to sit and knit while watching TV or carrying on a conversation.
The pattern has long sleeves but I made my sleeves shorter because I don’t like long sleeves!
I love everything about this sweater .. I just don’t love that I need to lose at least 30 pounds! 🙁
