Liesl


Today we went to the beach and I thought it was an awesome opportunity to photograph Liesl.



I loved making this pattern. It was such a simple quick knit! And the end result is so cute...

A nice, feminine, springtime sweater.




The great thing about the Liesl pattern is that there are so many variations and options available to make the sweater your own.


I chose the wide neckline-full-length-longer sleeved-buttoned version with no picot trim. I love it. Well. I love it mostly. I kind of regret not making longer sleeves. I think that a few more inches would have been a bit more flattering. Oh well. I don't feel like ripping anything out, I'll just deal with it.




The buttons I picked out were shell buttons, perfect for the look I had in mind.

The Rowan Summer Tweed also gives this sweater the springtime quality I was hoping for.

To me this sweater just looks beachy.





I think that Liesl translates nicely with a casual jeans and tee shirt look or like this over a summer dress. I know I will get lots of use out of it this season!

Of course, your knit is as beautiful as all the rest of your F.O.s! Knitters such as yourself make knitting not only look easy, but definitely make it look "good" too.

Which beach did y'all hit? My guesses are Avila or Pismo, but I'm leaning towards Pismo, lol.

The white summer dress underneath is a perfect companion to your Liesl.

Hi Alana, You make a great model! The sweater is really cute. I checked out the colors available at Dancing Ewe and there are alot of great colors. I think my favorite is 545-bronze.

This is beautiful ... and I love your summer dress! My only concession to the "change" in seasons here is to eliminate turtlenecks once in a while!

The sweater turned out so great! I really looks like an entirely new pattern--in a way--with your results. Love it.
