I love this sweater so much.  I fell in love with the colors in this yarn about 1.5 years ago.  I used some of it to make a scarf for a friend but because this yarn comes in 600 yd hanks, I had a ton left over on top of which because I love it so much I had bought a second hank.  I only used about 1.25 skeins of yarn.  I went down two needle sizes because I prefer fitted garments, I also added waist shaping – 4 decreases/4 increases.  This pattern was extremely easy and quick, I love the simplicity and though there is a cable motif, even that was simple.  I can’t say enough about this sweater, I love it, and my husband insists that this sweater is my best yet!  It’s definitely going to get a lot of wear this winter and winters to come.
