Notes

Loved this test knit for Baby Cocktails. I made no modifications except slightly for fit. It has 2 inches positive ease because I plan on wearing this during the winter with a white collared shirt underneath.

A very well written and enjoyable knit, I loved the deep V neck and knitting the little posy pattern.

I used my favorite tweed, Felted Tweed DK by Rowan. Always a great choice, I love the stuff.

This is an easy pattern, the only reason I gave it more of an intermediate rating here is because with a deep V neck, you are decreasing for the arm scythe and the V at the same time, but at different rate. You need to keep track of the posy pattern too. I am making it sound difficult, I assure you it’s not, but does take a little more attention. Still, most of the sweater is stockinette bliss.

My blog post here with lots more details!
