FO: The "4-Quarters" Pullover
Have you ever worked twice as hard on half as much?

Well, that's this pullover! With all my frogging and re-do's...I've knit this sweater twice! Read about the project, beginning to end... CLICK HERE

The pullover is knit in 4 quarters...two quarters are seamed up the middle to form THE FRONT and THE BACK halves. So, all 4 pieces are identical, with 2 being the reverse shaping of the other two.

Anyway, here's the sweater! I plan to wear it with black jeans and a black parka. Today, in the photo, I'm wearing my blue plaid pj's, left out of the photo!

Too bad it was so much work, but at least you learned something from it! And you ended up with a fabulous sweater!

It was absolutely worth the effort! It even looks good with the pj's (not shown). What yarn did you use?
