Initially designed to be a multi-textured wrap-yourself-up-in sweater, I became so enamored with the look of the “Fractured Lattice” pattern stitch, I just had to continue it.
Made from an extremely soft yarn, Fresco by Classic Elite Yarns (wool with some alpaca and angora mixed in to give it a soft feel and elegant look), it can be worn with a big collared shirt or nothing at all underneath. Raven, the model, chose an everyday dress of her own design with her mother’s original (vintage) Frye boots! I think of it worn with a big print skirt and pearls for a date or with jeans for a Saturday afternoon curl-up with a book.
Nonetheless, this sweater is not for the knitter who likes instant gratification! It is a labor of love, knit on #5/3.75 mm needles and lots of twist stitches. And the work pays off in the end, with a sweater that has the flexibility to be both classic and modern.
