Well, I know it's time for the weather to take a turn to the cooler side. Also, you can tell by the number of sweater and cardigan patterns featured on Ravelry! I've never had much success with knitting any shaped piece! But, that doesn't mean I can't learn--so when this popped up on Yarn Madness, I said to myself--"self, why don't you give this a try?" The pattern states that it is worked from the top down and in one piece, using worsted or aran weight yarn –The fit is relaxed-- and the topper of the whole project-- the whole garment is worked in garter stitch, so not a purl stitch in sight! Sounds good to me!
