French Girl "Fantine" Sweater
Hi!
I haven't posted anything in a very long time. I am still here and knitting! Just finished another French Girl "Fantine" cropped sweater and actually made something for me! I love this pattern and have made it for my DIL also. I am allergic to wool so have to use the "slim pickens" of bulky/super bulky cotton or double up worsted. Good to be back.

PS I used KnitPicks "Spinnaker" and the pattern is French Girl "Fantine".

Great job! Looks to be a fun, light-weight coverup.

Great little cover up--not too warm but great for when it is a bit chilly.

Wow, you knit for yourself? Are we moms and grandmas allowed to do that?

Looks like a nice fit! I really like your wood floors too.
