I've finally got around to taking the photos of the latest sweater to come off the needles. It was actually finished last weekend but I haven't been organised this week.
It's wonderful - such a perfect fit. Lovely Autumn colours - purples, greens and reds.
The pattern is by the wonderful Kim Hargreaves - nobody knows how to shape a sweater better than her. The name of the pattern is Bond and it originally appeared in Rowan magazine #28. It is now available as a free download on the Rowan website, here.
I've made this pattern twice before and I'm sure I'll make it again in the future. The pattern features a slash-necked version, a striped version and a three-quarter sleeves version!
The pattern calls for Rowan felted tweed but I used the more economical Sirdar Escape DK, but any double knitting weight yarn could be substituted. It took 9 x 50g balls for the smallest size. It's an easy knit and ideal for knitting in front of the televsion. This is going to keep me warm all winter.
