As I had some requests to write up my notes for this, I obliged. The pattern has been tech edited and is now available (see sidebar). The construction is fairly simple and suitable for an intermediate knitter. It's knit in separate pieces and then seamed together. The body pieces are knit flat while the sleeves are knit in the round and set into the body at the end. I-cord finishes the edging.
I've been wearing mine for the last several weeks and find it's a versatile sweater for work or on weekends. The yarn is a wonderful texture and weight for cooler summer days and it drapes beautifully. Hope you like it.
Now to prepare for a certain soon-to-be-six-years-old girl's birthday party tomorrow. We're going to see Toy Story 3. Yay!!
