WIP Off Shoulder Pullover
My current project is a Caron brand pattern for an off shoulder pullover. So far my patterns are determined by what my wife likes
I do have to say $64 for a sweater vs $15-30 for yarn and the pleasure of making something useful and passing time....priceless.
It is done in Simply Soft Tweed.
The project is going well and I will post the results here.

I love that yarn! I made some bed socks with it and they are really soft. It would make a beautiful sweater!

I have that yarn. It's so soft that I've been trying to find something to make with it. Is this a pattern that's online?
