The Fitzgerald Sweater

I finished knitting my first Cardigan, and my first sweater done in pieces. The pattern (Fitzgerald by Amy Christoffers) is from Berroco and uses the Berroco Vintage Chunky yarn, so the pattern knits quickly. (Well…quickly for a sweater.) I’m still waiting on the buttons to arrive to call the sweater 100% complete.

I really like how it turned out. I’m not really a fan of plastic yarns, but the Berroco Vintage has a good amount of wool, and is easy to work with. Plus, it’s not a huge financial investment.

My favorite part of the pattern is the shawl collar. In fact, I decided to knit the Fitzgerald because I wanted to see how the collar works and possibly do a similar shawl collar on my Aran sweater project.

Another cool feature is the sleeve detail. The two cables down the outside of the arm bordered by stockinette, really breaks up the acres of seed stitch.

Fit turned out good, and it’s very comfortable.
