Yarn: Malabrigo worsted (Sunset)
Completion Date: March 31, 2014

Remember that Malabrigo worsted I shared a few weeks ago? Ta-da! Here it is. This sweater kind of snuck up on me – it was a super fast knit. I made it my “on-the-go” project, mainly working on it while commuting to/from school until poof! a sweater was suddenly there.

The pattern is, for the most part, a nice, simple knit. The pattern is not very detailed, but if you have a general knowledge of knitting and sweaters, it’s not too difficult to figure out as you go. I only ran into a problem when working the garter stitch edging of the body, which I had to completely redo before it worked out to my satisfaction.

But I’m pleased with how this sweater came out. And I really love the yarn which is so soft and smooshy. I’m totally jumping on the Malabrigo fan-wagon. When the budget permits, I would love to try out some of their other yarn weights. 

This sweater will get lots of wear now that spring finally seems to have arrived in my corner of the world. Happy spring, everyone!

  1. This is so pretty and it looks like it fits you perfectly!
    I made an Abalone (2 summers ago, I think?) and I also had to fiddle with the edging quite a bit.
