Lateral Swing Sweater

It's finally done! This sweater has been my nemesis for the past 2 years! Not because it's a hard pattern, but because when I wrote the pattern I figured my gauge out wrong. This was devastating to me since the original sweater I had made for my mother for Christmas ended up being 3 sizes to big for her. I then preceded to knit up another size with the same pattern I had wrote for the first. Due to my (still unknown) gauge discrepancy, it did not turn our right, very small in fact. I then understood to my horror that I had the wrong gauge. This is the 3rd time I have made this sweater and it now works, but one st per inch was all it was between gauges to make or break a sweater pattern I found out.

We do have this lovely pattern at the shop and on Ravelry now for sale! Take a look! Its an easy and fun sweater to make, and it drapes beautifully!

It is truly lovely, and I so admire your ability to make patterns. I can barely read one.
