Pattern: Angelica Sweater
Yarn: Berrocco Cotton Twist
Overall I am happy. It is a bit heavy, but not bad, really. The yarn has a fancy shine to it that is really nice. It was a pain in the but to work with as it splits and the rayon is just very plasticy. I don’t know if that is the right word. I don’t think I will use this yarn again, not sure. I think my body would look better in something not variegated. I have made note of that for any future projects. The low v-neckline actually looks good on me. I don’t know if I like the arms. I love how they bell by the wrist, but I don’t like the bagginess under the armpits. I have looked at the picture of the original pattern and it looks like that is part of the style.

In the future, if I ever decide to make this again, I am going to make a longer waist and modify it so that the armpit isn’t baggy. I love the detail around the keyhole neck. This is the first top I have made for myself. Most all of my knitted and crocheted stuff is always for my kids. I am pretty happy with it. To think I learned to knit a little over a year ago. I am proud of myself. Hopefully I don’t end up being on some “fug board.” I love the Orange and think it is perfect for October-wear. 🙂

  1. I love that sweater, and the neckline is very flattering; do try to use it again when you make your own designs. According to the Compact Oxford English Dictionary: Plasticky: adjective 1 resembling plastic. 2 artificial or of inferior quality.


  2. I like it, especially the neckline and sleeves. And where the sleeves join the body. Bagginess under the arms would annoy me too.


  3. I hear you with the details you aren’t keen on but the good thing is you can make it slightly different next time…I rarely follow a pattern exactly as it is written. I think it looks great, btw.
