Simply Sweet Sweater


I just have to finish sewing up some seams and adding the buttons.
This sweater I knit using organic cotton yarn and I will be adding our own handmade hemlock buttons.  It came out to be a 2T or 3T.  
For the pattern, I took the basic concept from the Matinee Jacket.  I just loved the idea of working each of the parts separately on straight needles - right and left front, back, and each sleeve.  I knit each part in the order that they then go on circular needles and then knit a garter stitch yoke, with three button holes, back and forth on the circular needles.

I am thinking about actually working up a "real" pattern with different sizes and everything.

Last night I finished up Saved by Ben Hewitt.  -  Truly an excellent read, one that I will be sharing more about in another post.  

What are you knitting and reading?

  2. I'll keep an eye out for the pattern, sweet sweater - what a take a long because the sections are small then come together.

  7. Wow - what a lovely sweater! Fantastic job!! :) Yes, please write a pattern... perhaps I could give it a go!

    I am crocheting a simple shrug for myself. I do love to knit, but I am much faster at crochet.
