The sweater sans Ann's daughter.
Click here for pattern.
Ann thought it would be nice to add a simple pattern to the sweater so I went to my 'go to' knitting book, The Harmony Guide to Knitting.
I used the All-over Eyelets pattern on page 124.
I have this long mental list of things I've always wanted to try. 'Design a sweater' is on the list. After this experience, I've decided that designing sweaters is not my thing. I found it frustrating just to redesign this one. And I didn't even redesign it really, just added a different stitch to the body of the pattern. I've been a fan of designer Debbie Bliss for decades. My respect for her work has grown leaps and bounds after this experience and I think I'll leave the 'designing of knitwear' up to her. I can cross another thing off my bucket list. Thanks for the opportunity Ann!
