The Sweater Coat

So this is my FAVORITE sweater. Why? Because almost every time I wear it, someone asks where I bought it and I can reply "I made it!" It looks like it is much more complicated than it really is. Just follow the chart. If you know how to do a cable, you can make this sweater. REALLY! The pattern is Sylvi by Mari Muinonen and can be found on twist collective.

The only thing I would do differently is the sleeve. As you can see, it's a bit too long. To be fair, the picture of the sweater on the pattern has a long sleeve also, so I should have known. I just find it annoyingly long when I wear it. If I were to make it again (which is no fun, in my opinion) I would shorten the sleeves by one inch.
Other than that, the sweater is perfect!


  1. well, i must say, that really is a GREAT sweater. Great pics and a GREAT first post! welcome to the blogosphere!!!!!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous sweater! Isn't is fun to wear something you made? Maybe you could just turn up a little hem and stitch it down to shorten the sleeves.

  3. RE-markable! SO beautiful. I could NEVER do that. :)
