I call it a "sweater," but really, it's just the pieces to the sweater.
I found this great book at the Library called "Two Sticks and a String" by Kerry Ferguson. While flipping through it, I discovered the pattern called the Easy Mohair Sweater. It's a nice design. Only 4 pieces to knit.
I know enough about flat pattern design to be dangerous. As I was knitting the sleeves, I didn't think that the sleeve caps would fit into the armhole. After I finished the sleeves and tried to fit them into the armhole, sure enough, they didn't fit. I had to tick back the front and back of the sweater to correct the error. If I remember correctly, the yarn is Touch Yarns two ply mohair/blend. I purchased the yarn at Susan Yarns. Did I mention that I started this sweater almost 6 years ago? I don't know if the sweater will fit me anymore.
Tell me about your first sweater.
