We just got our copy of Vogue Knitting's new Early Fall edition. Lookie what Fiona Ellis created!
This is knit from our Shepherd Sock in Courage.
There are a bunch of things I like about this sweater. First, I'm a big fan of sweaters made from lighter weight yarns. I think they are flattering to a myriad of body types and great transitional wear. Believe it or not, we're still having weather where a light sweater is welcome in the mornings.
Next, the way the lace pattern angles is going to create a visual nip at the waist. That's almost always a good thing. It will add shape to straight figures and do a little camouflaging for the curvy.
Last, it's just sweet with those three little pearl buttons at the neck. I thought it might be too sweet when I first looked at it, but if you switched up those buttons, it could make a great jeans and t-shirt sweater. Buttons are mighty and powerful things.
