Knit Big Bow Sweater

I finished this sweater a month and a half ago during my summer knitting bonanza and got lazy about taking pictures.

The pattern is the Toulouse Pullover originally published in the Winter 2012 issue of Knitscene Magazine.

I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice worsted weight yarn in Patchwork Grey.

Total Cost: $23.95

I chose a colorful yarn since the sweater itself is so basic.  I bought this yarn a million years ago and I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, but once I knitted up a swatch I fell in love.

I made a lot of changes to the original pattern.  The details are on my Ravelry Project Page.  This was really an exercise in fit since I have plans to draft my own pullover.  If I ever have time.  Which I don't.  Fashion school is taking over my life.

And how cute are my booties?  I got them online at Shoedazzle.  I'm addicted to that site.  They have the best boots.

I am working on a coat for my Tailoring class and I'm about to begin my final project for my Draping class, so there will be some sewing-related posts soon.


  1. Very nice - I've never been a big fan of variegated yarn either but am crocheting a jumper with some and am converted, with the right pattern (like yours) it's really striking :)

  2. Very pretty sweater, Alison. Looking forward to seeing your coat!

  3. I love the variegated colour, and so beautifully knit up :)
