Talking, as usual. Crooked neckline, we did this photoshoot pretty quickly.
Above are closeups of the stitch pattern and a back view. Disregard the wrinkles, k?
Pattern: Rusted Root by Sarah Johnson of Zephyr Style
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. 3.5 skeins or about 750 yards. Yarn purchased on sale at Loops and Links yarn shop.
Needles: US 6
Started: May 17, 2009
Finished: May 25, 2009
Mods: The only change I made was in the sleeves. I did not add the poufy sleeves as in the pattern but after the raglan increases, just added the cuff.
Final thoughts: I really like this sweater, it's so versatile. Can be worn over a cami in warm weather or layered over a long sleeve tee as in the photos. I wish I had cast off more loosely as it is snug along the bottom but it works enough to not have to rip and reknit. I know I made one goof on the stitch pattern but would have to look closely to find it. I would knit this again and maybe go up a size or adjust some of the increases/decreases. Overall though, I love this and the yarn is great too.
Photos again by my favorite brother.
