Enjoying the pattern thanks
I’m not quite sure yet if I’ll knit it. I misunderstood what I was looking at and thought it was a shawl. Do like it though.
I have not yet had the chance to try knitting the sweater yet. But I do plan on starting it within the next few months.
I love it
Thank you so very much for such interesting model! I did not yet done it but is high in my bucketlist!
