My New Favorite Sweater

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be a test knitter for Anne Hanson's newest sweater design; Blümchen

I love my finished Blümchen.  Not only does it fit perfectly but it was such a fun and very easy knit that Im currently shopping for yarn for a second one!

If you are looking for a well fitting and flattering sweater this is the way to go.  I used Knitting Notions Classic SuperwashMerino in Pumkin Spice. 

The finished sweater may give the impression that it was difficult or challenging to knit, but I promise it was quite easy.  The lace pattern is easy to remember and I knit the majority of it while watching tv with Andy in the evenings.  I even brought it to our knit group and worked on it while catching up with the girls.


  1. Well done! Very pretty and very nice fit!
    Test knitter extraordinaire!

  2. You look fabulous in it! Curious if the sleeves are set in or knit from picking up stitches and knitting down.

  3. Thanks Marcy!

    E - the sleeves are set in and knit from cuff to top.

  4. You look gorgeous in this sweater, Lara! Every thing about it is perfect for you - the color, the shaping, the lace pattern - every thing.
