So, I was in hurry. If you read my previous post, you’d understand my urgent desire: needed a go-to pullover right away! I was already detecting the scent of warm spring air. For some reason, spring is the season of pullovers and cardigans to me. Finally I can wear something light and pretty. Perfect time to  show off my knit wears to the world! (Don't you feel the same way, knitters?)

This time I decided to go with something rather casual and cozy. This pullover is from my old, old, and old (yes, triple old!) wish list at Ravelry. Any of you made one? I know it was pretty popular back then.

After the sad disaster (Read my previous post.) I was well prepared for this: made a swatch and carefully tracked all the sizes here and there. This piece was totally easy, simple and fun to knit. The interesting neckline that I haven’t tried before was a bit challenging but I figured it out quickly. It is always fun to learn new techniques through new projects. (Another reason to knit more!)

So, my dear friends who mourned with me last time while we are letting go of my old pullover, cry no more! Please join this celebration of birthing a new beautiful pullover I whipped up. The process has been so~ smooth and fun. I really enjoyed working on each and every part of the pullover. It turned out incredibly awesome as you see! Perhaps the most wearable piece I’ve ever created. (Woohoo!! I got my confidence back! Not fully, but good enough!) I am totally satisfied with both the process and the result. As you see the photos, I couldn't stop laughing while I was modeling this new go-to pullover!

By the way, if you’re curious a about what pattern I was using, this is the link you’re looking for. Beautiful pattern by Isabell Kraemer called ‘driftwood’. You can download the free PDF pattern from Ravelry. If you ever ended up making one let me know. We should celebrate together! Again, I recommend this pattern very much, much, and much! (Yes, triple much!)

Hello, Mary~

Thanks for letting me know that my little post inspired you.

I am totally with you. I wasn’t so much hooked by the original theme of stripes. To me, it looked a little too casual than I wanted. I so much like the result with the solid color and it went with any outfits I chose. A literal ‘go-to sweater!’

It is way easier than it looks so if you’re a beginner it would be the perfect sweater to show off your passion of knitting. Go for it with a color you adore and let me know how you like your new sweater. Happy stitching!

I’m so glad you posted this, along with the photos. The Ravelry pictures didn’t catch my eye because of the stripes, but I love your version using a solid color. And it looks adorable on you! As a newbie knitter, it looks like something I might be able to tackle. I can’t wait to try it.

Hi TEMA,
Thanks for your nice comment. I appreciate that.

Yes, I used DK weight yarn and had to adjust the needle size. I made swatches a few times (you know, I had to let go of my old sweater so I was extra careful this time.) and tried to find the right needle size. Since I really loved this yarn (which is DK, light worsted) I had to play with needle size a bit. I think my fabric turned out little lose because of that but I like it even better. ;) It is really cozy and incredibly warm. I cannot wear it any more since it is getting warmer here already.

Again, thank so much for your comment. I truly hope you make this sweater. It is such an easy yet fun knitting. I am sure you will enjoy knitting as well as wearing it. Good luck and let me know how it goes~

Hi, I just saw this pattern on Pinterest and copied it out. I have a question… In your answer to questions, you said you used DK weight yarn but the pattern calls for worsted weight with the needles required being 4mm and 4.5 mm. I believe these needles are for worsted weight. Do you reconfigure the yarn and the needles to get the size you want so it matches the original pattern or do you have a separate pattern for this piece? BTW I love your sweater! And it does look wonderful on you. Love the colour too! Funny how it looks more put together the way you knit it to what the old pattern is…

Hi Cate,

Thanks! :) The yarn I used is pretty old, old yarn that I don’t have its label attached. It is DK in olive green-ish shades. I think any DK would work perfectly. I truly hope you knit this sweater. As I keep advertising, it is such an easy and enjoyable knit and.. you can wear all seasons around. One of the sweaters that I feel absolutely wearable. Good luck!
