My latest finished piece is this pullover knit from a pattern called Agnes by Melissa LaBarre. This was knit fairly quickly over the past week in spurts. I've had the yarn for two years and it was meant for another project but, I was never sure about how much I would wear the sweater and since I just wasn't feeling the chunky knit cable cardigan pattern I finally decided I needed to put this yarn to use with a different design.
I tend to like a more simple stockinette when using a heavy yarn in a sweater so this pattern was perfect. I liked the cute pockets that are a part of the design but for me I didn't think they would look great. I didn't want to add any bulk to the waist/hip area. I also increased a little after the underarms because I was afraid it would be too tight in the bust which turned out fine.
The end result:
I like the fit a lot and will definitely wear it. The yarn which is Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande was really nice to work with and soft too.
