Lime Rusted Root Summer Sweater


After making my vest - I wanted to make something that would be wearable for the summer. So, I got some cotton/silk blend & decided to make a pattern that has been a favorite of my - and is currently the #1 pattern on Ravelry, the Rusted Root pattern from Zephyr.

I went with a heavier weight yarn (worsted), and a smaller size - which worked out well. I'm pleased with the puffiness of the sleeves, and the thickness of the patterns -- this is one of many patterns that was designed for an extra-small, so, by going to a heavier yarn size, I think it helped to make the sweater look more custom-made to my size.

It looks wonderful and it looks wonderful on you! I would love to knit Rusted Root but I am a little intimidated by sweaters and tops. I think it is the investment of all that yarn and then what if it doesnt' fit! I'll just stick with knitting socks until I can get up the nerve.

Pretty...the color is awesome. I have a friend trying to teach me to knit...hmmm, maybe I should stick with needle and thread.
