That Green Sweater
That Green Sweater is a lovely story that involves Elizabeth Zimmerman, a Goddaughter, a knitter, a knitting magazine, a knitter_photographer and SchoolHouse press.
When I read the story I knew I had to knit it. One of the online groups that I belong to held a Knit-Along.
The original design has a very wide sleeve which I did not care for, so I changed it.
The sweater is knit in the round steeked at the front, the collar and the sleeves.
Very interesting and unique way of knitting the sleeves from the top down.
The collar (still missing the button) I have to find one around here.........
I love the result, enjoyed the process and learned a lot! Can't get any better than that!
Yarn: Cascade 220, 5 skeins
Needles: US size 6 and 7
