My favorite sweater

This is definitely the best sweater I have ever knit. It is as comfortable as an old sweatshirt but stylish. And it even looks good on me! I bought a long sleeved gray tee just to wear with it.

Pattern: Beaubourg by Julie Hoover
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Maxmima, in M2014 colorway (pink)
Needles: US9
Modifications: none.

It is in reverse stockinette, with the seams on the outside. If that bothers you, you can always wear it inside out. And I found a way to make seaming less painful: locking stitch markers.

I purchased the pattern from an LYS, and it lacked some improvements and corrections. I contacted the company and they emailed me the errata PLUS after reading a comment I left on Ravely, the designer contacted me to make sure I got them. Wonderful!

  1. That's one of my favorite shades of pink! It's funny how pink has so many connotations in our culture, but there is a world of difference between fuchsia and that tasteful shade.
