I saw a cute sweater in this fall's issue of Interweave Knits (my favorite knitting magazine). It was a beautiful read sweater with cabled princess seams. I loved the proportions, and the 3/4 length sleeves, and almost instantly decided to add it to my queue of projects.
I used some fiery orange yarn that is a mixture of mohair and wool from Lamb's Pride. I love to wear bright colors and jewel tones, but orange is a bit of a departure for me, but I am liking it more and more these days.
The pattern was pretty simple to follow, but I changed the crochet edging at the neck and the bottom of the sweater to make the design look more girly. (I am finding more and more I like the girlier patterns).
I love the end result of the princess seams, and the loose sweater. It is a very warm sweater, I only wish I had completed it earlier in the season.
