The FO itself wasn’t particularly quick, taking me a month and a half to complete. I haven’t even blocked it yet, hence the slightly too tight, slight too short nature of it as is. It’s supposed to be an easy going sweater, like you’d borrow from your boyfriend (hence the name).
Pattern: boyfriend by Lori Versaci
Yarn: Berroco Vintage DK in Pumpkin, purchased last Black Friday at fibre space’s annual sale
Yardage: Not quite sure, I’d guess 4.5 skeins so just under 1300 yards
Mods: Made it slightly shorter both in overall length and the length of the arms due to my, well, short nature
Comments on pattern: I liked this pattern but must admit that the twin rib drove me nuts. It’s one of the designer’s signature fabrics but I don’t think I’d sign up to lots more of it again. I liked that this was seamed – allowed me to practice my seaming and didn’t require me to fiddle with working on the round.
(Thanks to Matt for taking a quick iPhone photo. I sort of ambushed him in his office and made him take it. Try to ignore the green bag by my foot, wrinkled pants, and flipped up shirt hem.)
