This was one of the fastest sweater that I have ever knitted. Also one of the coziest! The pattern is Tea with Jam and Bread by the fabulous Heidi Kirrmaier. This is the fifth sweater that I have knitted using her designs and I ♥ and wear each and every one of them. I particularly ♥ that it is knitted with yarn from my stash. The main light grey yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca and is a dream to knit with. Heidi's patterns are always full of great details, like these cute pockets.
I also ♥ that the sweater is knitted from the top down starting with the neckband, which is shaped using a neat yarn over short row technique. It is always a nice unexpected surprise to learn something new from such a simple looking pattern. Couldn't resist amping up the cozy factor by turning the sleeves into handwarmers.
And here's my Interweave Knits pose...
