And ...here is the completed sweater. I'm totally addicted to making these right now. I'm using Plymouth Yarn 'Encore'. It's 75% acrylic and 25% wool. It's great to use for rugged wear that can be worn and worn and then thrown in the washer and dryer. It comes in a wonderful array of colors too! I forgot to mention that this pattern comes in children's sizes 2 - 12, and adult sizes from petite to super size. It also can be made with or without the hood.
This is another holiday gift ....I won't tell you who it is for. It is a wonderful 'beret' made with Koigu Yarn. You can find the pattern here
Also, to go along with the beret are a pair of matching socks! I'm almost done with the socks ...just need to finish up the toes!
Yes, the HOLIDAYS are starting to look mighty fine!
