I am so excited to be able to review this new pattern from such a talented creator. Jenise has really out done herself with the construction of such a modern tweed look. I will be the first to tell you that I love tweed, however I am not a big cable girl. So when I came across this pattern that encompassed tweed and a more modern look all while retaining its femininity, I jumped on it! What a perfect way to have a pullover that acts almost like a wide necked sweater and tastefully adorned with a hood.
The pattern its self is very well written. I am the kind of person that when knitting or choosing a pattern, I would rather have a little to much specificity in my directions then just leave it up to interpretation. This pattern is just the right mix of each. I am thrilled at the thought of sitting by the fireplace, snow on the ground outside and casting on this project. I have already picked out my yarn and put it on my Knit Picks wish list for Christmas!! I think her choice of the Lemon Curd is fantastic! Being a dark brunette with light skin tones, my tweed of choice is going to be "The Toad Color Way".
Here are a few creative photos of the sweater to entice you into dropping this into your queue!
I am such a stickler for finishing details. This pattern is no disappointment in this area either. What really makes me excited is the clean lines and the simplicity of her construction. I could see this pullover dressed up in a skirt like in the beautiful photos above, or just kicking around in your favorite pair of jeans and old cowboy boots.

Side note: She has given you the option on Ravelry to Send this pattern as a Gift. What a way to make a knitters Christmas by dropping a fantastic winter pattern into their library.
~Special thank you to Jenise for allowing her pattern to be reviewed~
