The Perfect Sweater


I give you "the perfect sweater".  That is my name for this delightful cardigan that fits perfectly for me.  I can easily wear a long sleeve shirt under this in the winter and be comfortable.  The secret sauce is the superwash wool that gives a little when you block the sweater.


Even though it's late spring, I've worn this.

Oh and I cast on another one in a pretty light green-blue wool (mad tosh again).



Do you like the photos?  This is me in the kitchen with a camera on timer mode.  Sometimes you have to do all the jobs around here.  Oh how I wish you could see this sweater in person.  I'd have you come over for some tea and knitting on the back patio.

We could listen to the birds sing and talk knitting, wouldn't that be fun?


Ravelry notes are here
tapered shaping at the waist

slight curved edge at the neckline

  10. I love it! It also looks like something that could be worn year-round (to deal with overenthusiastic a/c in the summer).

  13. That sweater is a home run! You look great in it. And yes, sometimes I think it would be so much fun to drink a little ice tea and talk knitting together.

    1. That pattern recipe is from Ann budd's book of top down sweater construction - my Ravelry project page has a link to the book.
