Sweater Lots of Love
Sweater Lots of Love works well in an acrylic, cotton, or wool blend. The sweater can be finished in a weekend or two, and makes a prefect gift or accessory to any outfit.
Sweater Lots of Love was created by taking inspiration from Candy Heart Socks by Mara Jessup, and made as an interpretation of Cherry Cordial Cardi by Libby Bruce, Pints&Purls p121. The sweater was worked as a pull-over for two reasons, my grandchild does better with pull-overs because she can’t get them off as easily:), and knitting in the round is easier for me!
I designed the lace with Intwined Pattern Studio. The project is posted on MarilynnsGardenKnitDesign.blogspot.com, but the chart presents better as a pdf.
