I'm calling this a spring sweater, even though it's made of wool. Deep V-neck and 3/4 sleeves are not depth of winter features. This is my Drops 113-33 a nice free pattern from the nice Garnstudio website. Go ahead and poke around, they've got lots of cute ideas.
The yarn I used for here was some Lana Grossa Merino Big wool that I'd had in the stash. This is a lovely sproingy wool and knits up super soft. I'm glad I've got even more in the stash. <hee> The color is a true vibrant turquoise that will hopefully wear will with denim and springy prints. I had 10 skeins of Merino Big (1300 yards) which sounded like alot, but I didn't end up having enough wool to make long sleeves. I gingerly knit up the sleeves with the remaining hanks, knitting both sleeves simultaneously to make sure they'd be the same length. I had to guesstimate how much yarn to reserve for sleeve caps and I've got about 10ish yards remaining. Not too bad with the guessing.
The pattern calls for knitting the body in one piece up to the armholes and I couldn't think of any reason not to do that. I did monkey with the body length a bit (I made it longer) and ended up with one buttonhole above the V-point closure. I briefly thought of sewing it up, but it's a one stitch buttonhole and not too noticeable. I'm going to ignore it and it'll go away. That works for many things in life.
I even liked knitting up the lacy bits! I know! Perhaps there's more lace in my future.
