Frances Revisited

October 14, 2009

























This is a simple sweater, knit from the top-down with chunky yarn so it goes fast. Details are the bell shaped sleeves, seed stitch borders and large cowl. This is a particular favorite of my husband who loves the Audrey Hepburn look. Frances Revisited is a free Ravely download. The yarn is RYC Soft Tweed in Thistle. This was a nice break from some of the more complicated patterns and tiny-needle projects I have in my work basket right now.

  1. I love the break that top-down, heavier-weight sweaters provide from more complicated knitting too :-) And yours turned out so well as always. That shade is lovely on you!
