My Lace Sweater!!!!!





Hand knitted 100% wool lace sweater from Lion Brand Yarn Fisherman's wool. Pattern from the book Knitted Jackets, by Cheryl Oberle. I modified the pattern by making a bolero style lace jacket a coat length lace jacket instead. It used about 2.5 skeins of wool (they are big skeins).

WOW! That is really amazing, Alana! I'm learning to knit. Recently taught myself to to crochet. I have a sweater in mind that I'm working up to.

Oh! That is gorgeous! I love it! Well done! I've not ventured into making clothing since my skills are so rudimentary but would love to learn to do something like this.
