It’s a free pattern, as of now. Always check to be sure it’s still free!
I love the cables! I’m not sure I would make the long sleeve version and if I did, I think I’d make the sleeves the same color as the rest of the sweater. I love the sleeves, but yet I don’t.
While I also love Cascade 220, which is a worsted weight yarn and is suggested for this sweater, I think I’d be tempted to do some math and use DK weight yarn to make this. Yes! That is what I’m thinking – DK weight with 3/4 length sleeves just extending the cap part of the sleeve.
One more thing – the pattern is new. As of this post, there are only two projects listed. This is a new and updated version of an older pattern of hers, which only had a few projects and was not rated. The designer, Stephanie Earp, has enough patterns published that I am not hesitant to do any of her new patterns.
The question is: Do I finish up some of the things I have started or do I go stash diving and find yarn to start this right away?
