FO - Green Gable!!


- pattern: Green Gable from Zephyrstyle.com

- A little less than 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece

- needles: Denise US6 and Addis US4

modifications:
- I added about 2 inches to the bottom. Maybe it's my extra...*ahem*...padding on top, if you will, but the shirt was just way too short the way it was written.
- I also added an extra decrease to make it more fitted at the bottom.

I really enjoyed knitting this. The cotton fleece is awesome - I'll def be using this yarn again. I'll probably make another one in the near future.

Aww, thanks, everyone! This is my first real sweater, and I'm very happy with the way it came out. I totally recommend this pattern, especially to any first-time sweater knitters!

that is gorgeous! I'm really tempted to try that pattern. But as an ADD knitter I'm afraid I'd get bored... :thinking:
