Orange Cotton Sweater
Created By: I Ioana

When I began that project, I didn't knew it will be so hard to finish it. The pattern is not complicated, but it takes an awful amount of time! That is why I did the sleeves in stockinette stitch, with just one stripe that goes around them. It turned out beautiful, though, and I am wearing it with pride :). But I'm not starting another project with this particular pattern any time soon :)).

The collar was a bit complicated, but in the end I've knitted the inside part (the one you don't normaly see) with knit2, purl 2, so it stays a bit stiffer as it did with the other pattern (the one you can see).

The pattern is simple, I don't remember how it came to me - wether I saw it on someone else's work or I simply wanted this type of stripes and figured it out myself. But the sweater is entirely my design.

Since I had this yarn stashed somewhere for ages, I don't know wether it's a LionBrand trade mark or not... I hope that it is :).
