11-8-2017 - TEST KNIT
This pattern has only been test knit once and it hasn’t seen the tech editor yet. It’s a pattern that’s heading out to my Ravelry group for free and we’ll get it all cleaned up from there. Once it’s all finished it will be a paid for pattern for the general public. If you have any questions about this sweater, please check the group. It might have been answered there. Errata is being listed in the group in real time - here = https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/spunky-eclectic-clubhouse...

In 2012 I created a pattern for Knitty that was called “Less is More”. Since then my group in Ravelry have knit that pattern and also knit versions of that color sequencing into other patterns as different knit alongs. I love the color sequencing. It’s a perfect way to use up single skeins of yarn.

This year as a group I asked them what they wanted to see and this is the sweater. Cardigan with pockets… with my own wishes for a big comfy sweater tossed in. This is a cardigan with large pockets and a single button closure. It’s comfy and just the perfect sweater to toss on. It’s simple knitting so it’s a perfect sweater for beginners to knit but with the color changes, it’s engaging enough for advanced knitters.
