I love Elizabeth Zimmermann patterns. They always stretch your understanding of how increases, decreases, short rows and other techniques create texture from your knitting. The pattern creates a piece of knitting that looks nothing like a sweater until the end when, voila, you fold it into a beautiful baby sweater.
This pattern took about 4 ounces of my finely spun wool/mohair mix that was dyed using lichens collected along Cottage Road in Averill. A true Vermont sweater from beginning to end!
