This is the Pure and Simple pullover pattern. My daughter likes the green one I made for her so much she asked for another in this rose heather color.

I think I set a record (for me) and finished the sweater in a week and a half! :cheering:

Looks very nice and cozy! Even more impressive given the record time! :)

Very beautiful sweater in a wonderful color! I can understand why your daughter likes it so much.
I can't even dream of finishing a sweater in a week. Finishing in a month would be a record for me.

Beautiful sweater. Wish I could finish . . . something . . . in a week, but too much knitting makes my hands hurt.

You've done a great job on this!

I love the simplicity of it, results in a very nice sweater. I just knit something in about that same color.

No, it's #9724...as far as I know it's still available. This is a worsted weight sweater.

Judy

P.S. I just checked the P&S website and it has #9724A which is a much more fitted version. If you want #9724 PM me and I can tell you where it's still available. The original is roomier and a much more relaxed fit.

That looks spectacular on your daughter--much better looking than a store bought sweater! Gee, can I be your daughter, too?

My first sweater was 9724..didn't know they'd changed it. :?? If the changes are only decreases on the body you could skip them, too.

Simple and plain is often the best way to go.

I like the sweater it looks great on and off.

Lovely daughter BTW.

Is there a link to the pattern you can share, or must it be purchased?

ETA- Sorry, I had not read all of the post are I would have found the answer to my question.
Thanks.

It's paid for pattern, but it's pretty basic so I'm sure you can find free ones. I just the the KPS patterns because from my experience they are very well written.

Thanks so much, Judy! 9724A is fine; I'd be making this for my daughter who is lucky enough to have a figure that doesn't require a relaxed fit. ;)

You can be my daughter provided you are potty trained, past the terrible teen years, and not yet approaching menopause :cheering: .

The pattern is well written. Also love the top down knitting and having only a couple of tails to weave in at the end of the project.
