Knitted Gray Cropped Sweater

Big surprise for everyone: a knitted cropped sweater.  Who would have thought?!

Total Cost: $5.98

I used Bernat Softee Baby DK weight yarn.  When I want cheap worsted weight yarn I usually use Caron Simply Soft.  When I want cheap DK or sport weight yarn, I like baby yarn from the craft store.  That way I still get a nice soft sweater but it doesn't cost a million dollars. 

This was a fun project.  The eyelet ribbing was more interesting than stockinette stitch but was easy enough that I managed to whip this up in less than a week.  If you want more details, look at my Ravelry project page.

 This pattern is Silver Lining from the book Short Story: Chic Knits for Layering.

I really love this sweater.  I think it will go with everything and can be worn year-round.
