sweater.

I recently made this sweater for a friend of mine who wanted a knit piece: 
The FREE pattern (designed by Barbara Breiter) can be found here.  I did change the pattern a bit by turning it inside out so the knit rows are on the outside.  I also decreased the number of stockinette stitch rows between drop stitch rows on the arms.  The yarn used is Patons Pure 100% Organic Cotton in Ruby Rose.  It is a great pattern for a first-time sweater project, fairly uncomplicated, and wonderful for all seasons (especially when knit with cotton).  Thank you for the experience, Doreen!  xoxo, Karen.
