Another nomination... Wicked!

The pattern includes instructions for a worsted weight and a lace weight mohair sweater. It also includes instructions for cap sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, long sleeves and for adding a pocket... This patttern truly is a "choose your own adventure" knit, no matter what your skill level may be.

Wicked is adaptable for any season as well as any body type, you can simply pick the version that will work best for you! It is knit from the top down and in the round. If you choose to add the pocket it is knit separately, then knit into the bottom of the sweater, requiring very little seaming and there is NO seaming for a pocketless version! The small cable detailing is beautiful and so easy to create - you don't even need a cable needle!

Pattern includes sizes: 28-32" (32-35", 36-39", 40-43", 44-47", 48-51", 52-55")

Suggested Consumer Friendly Yarns:
(All of these yarns are suitable choices. To obtain the correct gauge with your chosen yarn you may need to change needle size)
• Artyarns Supermerino
• Patons Classic Merino Wool
• Knit Picks Swish Superwash
• Karabella Lace Mohair

There is more pattern info at the Zephyr Website. It should be available before christmas. So perfect timing for anyone who wants to get a head start on the KAL.

The hoodie is very cute.. It's definitely going to be one of the nominations I consider. Thanks for introducing us to this gorgeous pattern.

I like the 3/4 bell sleeve option, although it's so cold here and I should choose long sleeves. Anyway, I like the versatility of this pattern as well as the details. Nice nomination.

The patterns with the wide, wide necks aren't really a wearable design for those of us who really have to wear bras. (Strapless bras simply aren't made in my size.) I'd say that this is good for any body type -- as long as you aren't busty!

Check by the zephyr website. There is a picture of it actually on and it doesn't show brastraps at all. I think the pick on here looks wider than it actully is.
