FO- Ingenue Sweater
This is "Ingenue," from Wendy Bernard's book "Custom Knits." I made the sweater in Simply Soft as a test , because someday I want to extend the pattern into a sweaterdress... but I ended up really loving this sweater!

Yarn- Caron Simply Soft in Plum Wine
Needles- US 7 (4.5 mm) bamboo circs

Thanks for looking!!
PS- Look how perfectly it matches the boucle skirt!! (Also handmade)

Lovely! Looks great together, too. What a great idea to extend that pattern into a dress. WB would be proud since she talks so much in the book of making a pattern your own.
