This is a pattern from Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel. It was my first attempt at knitting something other than a scarf or a shawl, so I was nervous about how it would turn out. All in all, I think it looks fantastic, especially since I only started knitting last winter and had to make some adjustments to the pattern due to my height (I’m 5’11"). I used a different yarn than what was suggested, so I had to adjust my needles to obtain the correct guage. I used Rio yarn by Tahki Yarns, which is 50% alpaca, 35% merino wool, and 15% silk. Needless to say, this sweater is insanely warm, despite it’s short sleeves. I almost can’t wait until the summer is over to start wearing it again. I’ve knit a couple of patterns from this woman and I would highly suggest her patterns to anyone who is interested in knitting something that is actually fashionable and form fitting. As with any knitting book, check on-line for corrections to pattern errors. There is one minor correction for this pattern. Just google “Fitted Knits Eratta.”
