Little Details Make the Sweater


Awhile back I talked of a new sweater design on the needles out of the beautiful Quince and Co. Owl yarn.
I am happy to report that this sweater has now been completed and I am really enjoying the little details that make this piece so unique.

A little button and loop closure on the cuff...


 A sprig of foliage winding around the asymmetrical neckline...


and the way the leaves gracefully drape over one shoulder.



This design was created for my new book Botanical Knits 2, but I can't wait until then to share this sweater with all of you!

Soon I will have this individual pdf available as a limited time purchase. And... not to worry.. the entire cost of the pdf will be applied to your future purchase of Botanical Knits 2 when that becomes available next year. 

This is just a little thank you for your being so patient with me as I work on the patterns for the upcoming book.

I hope to have this pattern available soon!

It's beautiful and I know I will want to make it right away! It's a great idea to offer a pdf early to appease (or whet) our appetites!

I just got my botanical knits 1 and I love it. Don't know which I love more ... The patterns or the presentation.

You are correct, the little details do make a sweater, and your leaf detailing is beautiful.
