Victorian lace sweater

I love this sweater. It’s the most complicated thing I ever knitted, but it didn’t take as long as you might expect. I used a heavier yarn than the pattern calls for – sock weight instead of fingering. This made for some minor modifications (casting on fewer stitches for the back, stopping the center panel a bit early, leaving off one section of the sleeves), but it also meant it knit up a little faster. And I ended up with a cozy sweater that looks like a lacy blouse. What could be better?

The pattern is the Victorian Lace Blouse from Michele Rose Orne’s Inspired to Knit.
