My First Knit Sweater

This was my very first knitted sweater .  I found this pattern on Red Heart website (link below).  It was a good learning experience for beginner knitters.  I shorten the sleeves a bit.  I only used one skein of Caron one pound.  I ran out of the skein and added some leftover white yarn I had.  I completed this almost a year ago and wore it a few times.

The yarn was kind of stiff once the sweater was done.  It gets hot when I wear this in my office.  It held up well after a few wash, but I probably won’t buy the yarn again if I’m making a sweater.
