Lady Sweater Fever…..

Have you caught the bug? I have!!! It’s very very infectious, so beware!!! The February Lady Sweater fever is hitting Ravelry like something I’ve never seen before. It’s HOT HOT HOT!! The sweater just screams at you to drop everything and cast on and makes great TV knitting. The lace is very memorable which is so unusual for me, if I may say so. I normally have to refer to the pattern every so often just to jog that memory of mine. 

Cast on using Noro Cash Iroha in Black, so wearable, using 4.5mm needles. I’ve chosen some textured effect brown wooden buttons, but not so sure if they are lost in the black…..what do you think?

Knitted from the top down, no seams, my kind of knitting.

……and I am loving this sweater so much I could knit a dozen more! well….just another in a different yarn. If you haven’t cast on…….may I ask why not? Join the fun!

    Fabulous. Someone (I can’t remember who) posted a photo of an upsized February Baby Sweater about a year ago and I loved it. Glad to see there’s a pattern out so I can be lazy if I so choose. ❤

    Top down, no seams? You almost have me convinced to make one.

    Those are very nice buttons.

  • Paula

    Another gorgeous pick…love this sweater! I will have to make one, too. It’s on my list.

    Those are great buttons, really artsy, but I’m afraid they’ll get lost in all the black. Maybe a contrasting color?

    Bloody gorgeous! And to think I’ve sat impatiently waiting for my DIC Classyin Happy Forest to wing it’s way over to Britain so I can cast this on, and all the while I’ve had a 10 pack of Cash Iroha in a gorgeous navy that I hadn’t considered using. Now there’s no excuse not to cast on! x
