Knitted Minisweater

This project had been put on hold while I started and finished my talia vest. The minisweater/boobholder is a free pattern by Stephanie Japel. I downloaded this pattern from Ravelry.

I liked some of the modifications made by other Ravelers. I followed mainly the pattern and basically extended the length and joined in the rounds. It was a very easy pattern. I used exactly 6 skeins of Berroco Softwist using a size 9 knitting needle. This yarn was very soft but kind of "splity". I would not recommend using this yarn for any project using any needle smaller than 9. If I was to make this again, I would add some waist increases. It's a bit snug even with the yarn over bind off.

Overall, it's a fun and easy project to do. I'm pretty happy with the results! Now I'm on the hunt for my next project. I may do a skirt as a future project...
