I was so excited to put the last stitches into this sweater and finally be able to wear it. Wasn't it considerate of Mother Nature to provide a cool and rainy July weekend for me to do so? Well, at least this was a plus side!
The pattern is the Dragonflies Jumper by Joji, from Ravelry. You can see all my notes on my Ravelry page here. It is the first time knitting one of her patterns and I have already purchased another because I was so happy with the style and fit. The design is so intricate and I just love it paired with this Plucky Primo wool (in bohemian blue). The cashmere is this wool makes it so soft to the touch- such a treat to wear!
The pattern required more thinking than average, so this wasn't the best "social"or "tv" knit, but it wasn't difficult. I did a few mods- the pattern called for a 2 stitch side band in garter, but I decided if it was there, I would make it more district by extending it to 6. Also, I opted for 3/4 length sleeves so I can pair it with some cute bracelets :)
Love the look of this with a tank and jeans. I think it is a pretty flattering fit and will be a real go-to piece for me!
Already have cast on the next knit!
