This is the sweater that I began as soon as the weather began to cool off enough to hold a sweater in my lap. It was knit to coordinate with the Hitchhiker scarf I made last summer and fall.
The project got sidetracked to knit the three sweaters for the grands and two other gifts that are wrapped for Christmas. My sweater pattern is a formula based on the Ann Budd Top Down Sweater book, changed to suit the stitch pattern that I wanted. I am pleased, I think. I’m still not certain about the 3/4 sleeve that I chose to do and may yet take the cuffs off and extent the sleeves to make it long sleeved. It is a nice warm wool and very soft Shepherd’s Wool, knit on a size 8 needle, yoke style with a single button closure at the neck.
Now I’m off to knit two pair of mittens for the Florida grands who will be moving here the first of the year.
