Just wanted to share my latest project. I absolutely love this sweater! It's very versatile. I used Knit Picks Telemark Yarn in Brass Heather, made this in a size Small with a few mods to it - more on my ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ImNotTarded/camden





I thought that if I hand washed the sweater it wouldn't felt, and I've never done felting before so I didn't know. I put it in the dryer on medium heat for an hour, in a laundry bag and it felted a little but the waist/ribcage and shoulders fit a lot better, it was incredibly loose before even with the bust fitting tightly, really weird fit even with the mods I made (I calculated all the measurements and noticed only the XS had a defined waistline...usually that is opposite). I haven't washed/dried the sleeves yet because I finished those after washing the body so they're still a bit loose, and I do need to get some buttons for it but otherwise it's finished Grin And felting actually made the yarn a bit softer so it's really comfy now, not as soft as the Alpaca probably woud have been, but I don't have an Alpaca budget, lol!

Thanks  Smiley
Without the buttons they stay up pretty well, but I did slouch them down a little bit.

This is beautiful - I love the bobbles on the front. You've fitted it really well, too!

I think it would be fun to try with buttons joining the arm-warmers to the sweater, as a sort of modular top!

Thank you Smiley

It does call for buttons, 6 of them. I just haven't gotten them yet Cheesy
