I love everything about this sweater... the pattern, the yarn, the color, the buttons... EVERYTHING! The pattern, Coveside, is from Cecily Glowik MacDonald who has been whipping out patterns faster than I can knit them and they are all beautiful. The yarn is Brooklyn Tweed Shelter from Jared Flood. It is 100% American grown and spun. That is a fact I really like because I think it is important to support American farmers, mills and designers. The color is called Long Johns and it was a gem to work with from casting on to blocking. Sometimes picking the right button is a chore, but I found some oval shaped wooden buttons in my stash that complimented the yarn and style.

I will use this yarn again. There are so many gorgeous colors to choose from.

The vest can be worn with the collar buttoned all the way up or unbuttoned.

Pattern: Coveside by Cecily Glowik MacDonald (Ravelry Link)
Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, 4 skeins
Color: Long Johns
Needle: US9

I think this might be my holiday sweater!
