I started this sweater a while back,
now with Andy retired, I will have more time to knit, sew and garden.
It's very easy to do, I plan to put a lining so that it's warmer for the fall season and I guess it would be less itchy too :)
This is the pattern I used, it's from the Fall 2001 Knitter's . I tried to find the closest color and I think I succeeded. It's very loose fitting, I might put a zipper on it too.
I'm using Alafoss Lopi Fuschia Heather from Camilla Valley
It's a chunky yarn and knits up really fast!
