I Can Do That!

 It started with this free pattern from Berroco.
I liked the older style and thought it would work with the new variegated yarns available today.
 The pattern called for worsted weight yarn but I bought DK Colors by Premier so I needed to do some extra math.  AND I wanted to do this sweater on the knitting machine!
The math isn't that hard once you do your swatch.
If the pattern has a schematic, you have all the information you need to plug in the number of stitches to work in and the number of rows to work out.
 In no time I had the sweater front and back!  Next are the sleeves!
And the color of the yarn reflects the greens of the azalea hedge!
