Paris in the Spring

This pattern comes from Simply Knitting magazine (May 2013) and it is named Paris in the Spring there. It is also named Briar in Ravelry.

This is a very nice cropped sweater and fits like a glove although it requires a lot of seaming. I had a dozen of cute buttons on my stash so added more than the 6 or 7 requested by the pattern. I knitted it with a little more than 4 balls of mercerized cotton “Cheope” by Adriafil in shade 015 and with 3 and 3.25 mm needles.

Husband’s Christmas gift. For finishing it on time I omitted all the cable. It was a very long knitting. Lots and lots of stocking stitching. Hope he likes it. Started this on December 11 and finished it on December 20.

He normally wears L/XL but since I read comments at Ravelry that the sizes were big I knitted the small size and changed the increases in the sleeves using a sweater of him as a guide. Otherwise the sleeves would be very wide.

Pattern is by Martin Storey for Rowan.
