Green Gables Knits Instagram Gallery~ Anne's Sweater

by Joanna

Time for another Green Gables Knits Instagram Gallery post! This is the third Anne's Sweater I have knit. (1st one- for the book, 2nd one- for me, 3rd one- for my mom's birthday!) I used the yarn as called for in the pattern, Brown Sheep Company Lanaloft Sport, in the colorway Buoyant Blue. I worked the sweater in a size 42" from a one-pound cone of yarn, and was pleased to see that I only needed one more skein to finish the sweater.


Confession- this was supposed to be mom's birthday present last fall, then her Christmas present. Alas, the sweater sat in a small laundry basket in my studio all summer, sad and sleeveless. I determined to finish it for her THIS fall for her birthday, and was able to deliver it to her in person. It fit her perfectly!


In other Anne's Sweater news... I just cast on a 4th Anne's Sweater for our teenage daughter. I am knitting it as a part of Little Skein in the Big Wool's #annealong. (Click here to read about this awesome knit along!)

My goal when I designed Anne's Sweater was to create an easy and wearable cardigan that I would make for me, my mom, or my daughter, and that we would all love and enjoy. So far I have had success with two of three generations... I will keep you posted on how this one works out for Laurel!
