$5 in Paris -- Sweater #2
Sweater #2 is complete! I think this one turned out really cute and it will be perfect for spring and summer! I used Caron Simply Soft in White and Heather Gray, as the pattern called for, and used just about a skein of each.
I only made three minor modifications: cap sleeves, a longer torso and I used US6 needles for the collar to get a closer-fitting neckline. This one was a free pattern on Ravelry, so the whole project only cost about $5. Seriously! You really can't beat that!
I als used the jogless stripe technique, which makes a huge difference when you use multiple colors. I think this is going to look so cute with a pair of white shorts, no?
