Making: The Francis Revisited Sweater
Francis Revisited (Ravelry link) created by Beth Silverstein and blogged about here. It really is a simple, lovely pattern: top down, raglan, knit in the round with no seaming - yay! I couldn't have asked for a better first sweater pattern.
I knit this with a bulkier yarn than called for - more of an aran weight. It made for a bulkier and stiffer fabric, but I like that it keeps me quite warm. Of course, the short sleeves are at cross-purposes with warmth . . . but I like the way it looks with a white long-sleeved tee underneath. Raveled here.
