Trowbridge

So the Trowbridge was another test knit for Alicia Plummer and as usual it was perfect. I am so happy with this sweater, it is one of the best fitted pullover’s I have made. It is a simple Raglan construction, but the little added embellishments on the collar and sleeves are what really makes it a beautiful sweater.

I love the yarn I used! It is  Cascade 220 sport and well I love cascade, it is a great go to that isn’t to expensive and makes beautiful projects. The color of the yarn is just lovely, it is called pumpkin spice.

The buttons I used are from AddVintage and they are black Czech glass from the 1930’s with a silver overlay. They are gorgeous!

I know I have said it before and I will say it again if you want unique antique buttons, or just unique buttons that happen to be antique this is a great etsy shop to check out and the women who run the shop are awesome and super helpful.

Now back to the sweater, everything about this sweater is great, so there really isn’t much more I can say about it. Alicia is just one of those designers that creates a beautiful design that is also simple and comfortable. She just recently published a new hat and she has many more patterns up her sleeve, you should totally check her out!
