Oatmeal Pullover


I've been working on this secret project using Indigo Moon Silken Pleasures in Teal, a trinity stitch cardigan with very unique construction. It's knitting up beautifully but I have had some trouble dealing with the construction of the front of the garment. Instead of beating myself up about it or getting totally burnt out I've tucked this work in progress under my desk to hibernate for a while. To perk myself up I set out to design a simple raglan pullover using chunky yarn from my stash. Voila, I introduce the Oatmeal Pullover made from Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky, instant gratification using very little yardage!

  2. It's great to see a designer making elegant knits. And garments that flatter them. Good job!

  3. Your hair is sooo long now! I cut 4 inches off mine and now I'm regretting it like the plague. I love this sweater, I think you should put a sweater-pack together, I'd buy all your sweater patterns! >D
