I finished Julie Hoover's Cline sweater last night. This is a modern loose-fitting sweater with dolman sleeves. Using the Berroco Comfort DK gave the knitted fabric more drape versus the structure that I would have had with the recommended yarn. I still am happy with the results. Like all of Julie's patterns, the directions were clear and easy-to-follow. She also includes different stitch techniques, so it's fun learning those and trying something different. I typically like more of a bright/neon pink color palette, but I really like this pale pink trend that's happening right now, which is why I chose this color. The sweater is soft and warm, a perfect layering piece for the transition back to fall. Another plus is that it's machine washable!
