Lettuce Knit in Toronto, Ontario

This knit up so quickly, and the pattern was very easy to follow. The only mods I made was to start off in the medium size, then decrease gradually on either side till I reached the right numbers for an extra small size top. I’ve found that this is the best way to flatter my pear shape.

The perfect weekend sweater. I really love this yarn. It’s lofty, light, and warm. A tiny bit scratchy (mohair!) but a great outer layer.

Just started. Love the look and feel of the yarn and the stitch pattern together. Smooshy love!
