I think this sweater is so wearable and classic looking! I have never done something at this large a scale with such a fine gauge but I think it looks worth it. The pattern calls for Knit Pick's Gloss, which makes it very affordable.

You can look at it here.

Is anyone else interested in making one?

I was really thinking about it this morning when I first saw this.  However, I don't think I could do it on 2.5 needles.  Definitely need to think about gauge a bit.

That's a lovely jumper! I wants, I really do. But I'm going to try and find a suitable sub. I have some hemp yarn, but that might be too rough on my hands. Oy.

I love this sweater and it goes along with my pact to stop knitting bulky sweaters...now I just have to break my no new yarn resolution.

i love this!  i am absolutely in love with thermal shirts (and wear them  several times a week) and i love this because it's a little nicer looking than your normal thermal.  i am just afraid that by the time i would finish it, it would be too warm out to wear it. Sad  so i haven't decided..

I fell in love with this and I too am a big thermal wearer. I ordered my yarn for it already (the gloss in burgandy). I'd been searching for a new project for a couple days. I am a little worried about the gauge, but I'm willing to give it a shot. I didn't order the needles yet though. I've been having gauge issues with everything lately so I think I'll swatch with DPN's first.

Now lets see how long it takes to get my knit picks order. And of course, will it be done before it warms up around here? (That could be tomorrow or next month in in Central Virginia)

I gave in and ordered the yarn too.  I'm straight up boring by choosing not only the same yarn as the pattern, but the same color as well.

I think that I'm going to make the sleeves 3/4, but I haven't decided yet.  Has anyone used Gloss before?  I am anxious to get started!

I must have this sweater, the only catch is none of the gloss colors turn me on at all!! I figure I can substitute and fingering weight/ sock wool. I really like the mint color in the knitpicks Pallette, but was wondering if anyone was familar with it? I know it will felt if washed improperly, but does it pill alot, is it soft, and anything else useful like that to know? Elann.com has a merino/silk combo also, but to get similar yardage the sweater would cost twice as much!!!

Hopefully I get to join you guys on this one soon!

i agree about the colors.  does anyone know of an affordable yarn similar to that that comes in a pink?  (like a warm bubble gummish pink, not hot pink or pastel pink)   i might be convinced to make this if i can find a yarn i'm in love with.  i definitely think the wool/silk blend looks nice, it looks like it drapes nicely in the picture.
