This sweater is supposed to use 3 different yarns, however it works out as an Aran weight sweater. I was looking for a simple sweater and thought I'd give it a go with a dusky pink Aran weight yarn. The same yarn I used for the poncho and hat. I still have a good bit left since I bought 3 balls of it.
It's knit in the round and a little A line. What I like about it is the simple detail and the fact that it's a brilliant fit, especially around the shoulders and neck. I usually have to do some adjusting in that area. But not with this pattern.
The sleeves are nice and long, something I always have a problem with when buying sweaters. Not that I can find warm ones for the winter, since I can't wear wool. I look like I have fleas or something with all the itching it causes. But this contains 20% wool and is ok. Although I did knit mum a pure wool sweater that had the yarn treated, and that didn't cause any problems. But it didn't hold up well after washing and lost it's thick cosy feel. Which was a huge disappointment.
So if you would like to knit this Drops 150-7 Fox Sweater have fun. I'm off to find a tank top/vest pattern for my next project.
