This sweater is the reason I learned to knit last summer. I stumbled across it on Ravlery and was instantly in love! How proud am I that I was able to knit it within a year?! VERY.
Pattern: Owls, by Kate Davies
Size: 5 (40" bust)
Yarn: 1.6 skeins of Cascade Eco+
Needles: 5.5 mm (for the ribbing) and 6.0 mm for the body and sleeves
I'd originally started a size up, with a 42" bust, but the designer was right when she said this sweater looks best at 1-2 inches negative ease. I'm glad I frogged* the first few attempts so that I could get this great fit. I do understand why people go larger though, because this is snug. Please see my Ravelry project page for more details.
PRAISE BE TO THE GREAT GREEN OWLS!
*frogging is a fun term used by knitters (and crocheters?) that means pulling back a project. Because you rip it, rip it, rip it. Heh.
