Hey knitsters, this is Bandit. When I first saw this pattern I was very skeptical. It looked kind of different, with one sleeve and a wrappy part. A friend knit one and I tried it on, I was sold! I wore it all day and very very reluctantly took it off . I love this sweater/wrap. It is awesome. It looks great on everybody, it can be knit using lots of different yarns.
This could be knit with a tweedy yarn to wear with jeans and a tee, linen or silk to wear over a pretty blouse or dress or with some glitzy yarn for Christmas. It really really does look good on everybody. Lots of us are knitting this pattern.
The added bonus is you get to use a pretty shawl pin, or an old brooch or some funky jewellery as a fastener.
I knit this using Lago, a Berocco yarn. The pattern is super easy, basically a rectangle that you knit flat for approx 40 inches then in the round to form the sleeve. I love it, it fits and it looks good when worn, so I will knit it again.
Good stash buster and great as a gift!
Recently we went to Victoria for a family visit. It is such a beautiful city.

There is a lot of gardening happening, but that's for another time.
Happy knitting friends ! Chris
