I've only made one sweater for myself (that I actually kept) before this and got rid of it years ago. This is based on Drops pattern 127-13 like the bright green one I made a while back for my youngest daughter. I liked the pattern and thought I'd like one. This yarn was the wrong gauge so I knit the smallest size and hoped for the best. I also made a lot of changes including going with 2 colors and intarsia leaves this time and adding bobbles (pattern had some but not exactly the same). Yarn is Queensland Kathmandu DK (merino, silk, cashmere blend).
