Unfortunately, the yarn I wanted to use was a heavier weight than the one in the pattern, so with a few adjustments, I managed to make a decent sweater that is really snug and warm.
I added a few rows to make it longer, due to personal preference, which was easy enough to edit due to the simplicity of this pattern.
However, in my edits, I did make the neck a bit too wide. It is more of a boat neck. I may rework this in the future, but for now, I am happy with this sweater. It has been brilliant to throw on top of whatever I am wearing on some of the colder days we have had this month.
I required a photo for the cover of our ACNH themed board on Pinterest and loved this pattern. It is a speedy make, however, I did lose some confidence at the rounds where its shaping began. But as long as you follow the instructions you will have something like the image below when you have finished.
This pattern is free on their website, but you can purchase the pdf for $1.50 if you wish to support them.
If you try any of these patterns, please let me know. I would love to see what you make!
If you have any suggestions for patterns I can make in the future please send me an email.
Hopefully next month I will be able to update you on a test pattern I am currently making for The Knit Yorker. As with most test knits, this has been a lot of fun to participate in, and I can't wait for it to be available for you all to buy.
