Jaime's Porticus Sweater
Porticus pattern by Amy Christoffers
9 skeins O-Wool Legacy DK in Coal (size 34)
40" US 4 circular needles
I choose to use the yarn the pattern was made for - the O-Wool Legacy DK. This organic wool yarn is a soft merino, but tight plies mean it will wear well. I choose black - I wanted a classic sweater that will look great for years. The stitch pattern is still visible, but it is very subtle in black.
The sweater went together great. It is knit top down and seamless with raglan sleeves. The stitch pattern at the top, bottom and cuffs keeps you motivated to knit fast and the stockinette stitch in the middle is perfect for watching tons of Downton Abbey episodes.
Yay for knitting!
