Blue Donner.



Took me 4 month, but I did finish this beautiful sweater by  Elizabeth Doherty @bluebeestudio I absolutely love it. 💜💜💜 The fit is fantastic.  I wanted to try some new and interesting construction. and Donner fit the bill. I love the shoulder construction of this sweater, especially the braid on the back. For my mods on how I picked up sts for the braid see the project page:


I cannot say enough good things about this pattern.You can tell a lot of thought went into the design and calculations. I highly recommend this pattern, but be aware that it is very very heavy on short rows. I am not a big fan of short rows, but they do make your final garment to fit well and thus worth the straggle even if take four month to make. :-) 
The yarn is light fingering  cashmere from Colourmart @colourmart. After wash it bloomed and absolutely scrumptious.
Happy knitting,
Diana
