This sweater is attractive, stylish, and warm when the weather is not. Reminds me of a couple of expensive sweaters I have seen in shops and of one or two expensive shops I had to buy... thank goodness for sales. This sweater I can choose colour and enjoy knowing I knit it... love it

This is an interesting looking sweater which be most welcome on those cold days. It has an interesting stitch pattern. I had to look up what knit 1 below was and tried doing it. It does make for an different look. I like the twisted ribbing before. Not hard to do but once again it gives it an different look. I would think a solid color yarn would be best to show off the stitch detail. Other than that, it is a basic sweater and I like that it has different sizes. Thank you.

I absolutely love the color and texture of this knit sweater pattern. Plus, it looks extremely cozy. I wish I had the skills needed to make such a stunning design!
