This sweater sprang from a desire to have something warm to wear at the cottage over the next 30 years or so. I wanted classic, comfortable and cozy and hoped to knit it in crisp white wool.
I love the reverse stocking stitch sleeves and the detail along the selvages. (I must remember to block these along the sleeve/shoulder join more carefully to better show them off!)
The finished fabric is quite light and drapes beautifully.
I chose convex Mother of Pearl buttons shaded with the navy, warm cream and white of the shells from which they came. A fitting nod to the water on which I plan to wear this sweater a lot and a perfect compliment to the yarn.
I'm very happy with the net impression. It feels great, looks laid back and works with everything from jeans to khaki shorts to leggings and white pants.
On the day we went out to take these FO pics, it even matched the weather!
Thank you for dropping by. Thanks Jared for a wonderful design and pattern!
