Guacamole Sweater

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Guacamole Sweater Link to website or photo www.etsy.com/shop/TrappingsandTrinkets What are you most proud of? I'm really proud of the fit on this pattern. I love the way the honeycomb stretches to fit with some negative ease and I like the the sleeves are relatively fitted as well. I think this sweater looks like something you'd find in an upscale boutique. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take a little time to swatch the honeycomb stitch. The yoke pattern is written out row for row, but it's still helpful if you understand how the pattern progresses (and it's essential to swatch and measure your gauge anyway!)

What you will need
