Comments: I love this sweater! I think I will wear it a lot this fall and winter. It is very comfortable. It was easy to knit - top down seamless (my personal favorite!). I loved working with the Malabrigo yarn. It is very soft and easy on the hands, and I really like the over dyed look. This is a simple pattern, and I basically followed it except for a few things. First, I centered the button placket after seeing this version. Then, I made it a little longer in the body and sleeves, and I didn't make any button holes. Instead when I was done, I tried it on and decided how many buttons I wanted and where I wanted to put them. I then sewed them on to the outside, and added large snaps on the inside. Because the sweater is so simple, I added some handmade buttons to jazz it up a bit!
