New pattern: Tourist Sweater

Wow, it's almost June!
I am very happy to be able to show you my latest pattern: Tourist Sweater.

This tunic is the perfect go to pullover when you need something simple yet stylish. It’s a simple and quite quick knit, with a few twists that will keep the process of knitting it interesting, starting with knitting the collar in one direction, and the rest of the body in another.
Since it was designed to be the perfect traveling sweater (I made this specially thinking of our trip), it has a kangaroo pouch where you can put what you need to keep most at hand at all times. Finding the perfect buttons for the pouch adds the last touch of fun to the process of making the sweater.
It is designed for bust size ranging from 28/30 to 56/58 inches or 70/75 to 140/145 cm.
You can read more about it here.

My sister took these pictures of me while we were visiting her in The Netherlands.  The daffodil gardens were perfect for a backgroud with this awesome yellow yarn.
The yarn I used is Malabrigo Merino Worsted, one of my favorite yarns ever, in colorways Frank Ochre.  A perfect shade of yellow.  Just perfect!

And just because I love this little guy so much and we aunties are like this....  Here is another piture of my Tourist sweater in action, the moment I met my Godson: Noah.

Hope you guys like it!
