The green and black look lovely together and the pattern provides clear instructions for several different sizes. You can quickly work up this warm weather sweater and start showing it off right away. The bulky weight yarn ensures you stay comfortable while the sleeveless design allows for movement and air flow on those days when you just can't figure out what to wear.

Printing the pattern off now with the plans of doing a variegated top and solid bottom. The bottom in going to be strawberry in color and the top neopolitan in color like the ice cream. Using a blend of cotton and not going with the chunky yarn. I'm also going to do in the round as I don't want to seam.

I love that this fits right in with the block coloring that is so popular in fashion right now. I also greatly appreciate that the extra large size is included! I wonder if you have a thick middle like myself if it would be better to swap where the black is located. I always thought it was good to wear your colors closest to your face?!? Anyone else have a thought?

This is such a beautiful and easy knit! I love the fact that it's open to different color combinations. You can make a ton of these with different colors and they'll all be beautiful. It doesn't seem like it'd take too long either. Has anyone knitted this yet? Is it a quick knit?
