Ever since I saw the Portland Pullover in the 2006 fall issue of IK, I knew I had to make it in my mohair. So, two years later, I finally did:
I really like this, a loosely knit fuzzy sweater shaped by gradually decreasing needle sizes (from 15 to 13 to 10.5). A very simple, mindless knit, round and round and round in stockinette -- perfect for a brain-dead grad student. I don't think I made a single alteration to the pattern, either, which is a bit unusual for me.
And it's warm and fuzzy, too! So what if it makes me look 30 lb heavier?
