linen


pattern: my own design
yarn: louet euroflax in bristol fog
needles: us 6




i am very happy how this sweater turned out. it is a basic "knit from the top" pattern. i made the sleeves fitted and 3/4 long to set off the long Aline shaped body. the linen was a bit tough to knit, but i am at peace with it since :
a) i already threw it in the washer and dryer and it came out looking great
b) i love the feel of it on my skin, its almost cooling. big plus when you live in los angeles
