It was really hard to photograph the sweater today. The photographer (Who, by the way, turned sixteen and got his permit last week!) was more interested in other things on his day off. The lighting wasn't very good either. But trust me it is very pretty in person. I think I might wear it on Thanksgiving Day.
Yarn: CascadeYarns Ecological Wool - 1 skein - 478 yards
Needle: Us 10 circular needle
Notes: I cast on the extra 10 stitches at the yoke. I shortened the yoke ribbing by two rows in each section. I added three button holes. I did seven repeats of the leaf pattern for the front. I used the size 10 needle for the sleeves. I did two repeats of the pattern on each sleeve followed by three rows of the twisted rib used on the yoke and then bound off in the pattern. I would have made the sleeves longer, but was afraid I would run out of yarn. I probably could have added a few more rows of ribbing, but I really didn't have much yarn left.
I love it!
