I've finished Meghan's Sweater, and I love it. I don't want to part with it... But I will! I mean, it's too tight for me anyway....
It's an extreme modification of this pattern, knit with Knit Pick's Andes Del Campo yarn in Vineyard Heather. I'm telling you - this yarn is awesome. The color is lovely, the texture is lovely; it's soft while knitting, and even softer after blocking. This may be my new favorite Aran yarn!
I took the basic shape of the pattern, and threw out the rest. In the body section, I added chunky 5x5 cables with a gorgeous braided cable up the center back. I pulled inspiration from Aidez for the sleeves, and knit one 5x5 cable down the center, with the rest in stockinette. The sleeves were picked up around the drop-shoulders and knit down with decreases on the inside of the arm, and finished with matching 4x4 rib at the cuff.
It's so cozy and slouchy, I hope Meghan gets to wear it every day for what little winter is left!
