This is the "Snowdrift Aran" from Knitters magazine, Winter 2004. I used Cascade 220 cream colored yarn.

The ribbon on it is Merit Award! That was a complete shock to me. The FLAK sweater was a lot more complicated and I considered this sweater to be easy. The comments from the judge were, "Beautiful job knitting in pattern the hem,cuffs and collar are wonderful!" The comments on the FLAK sweater were, "Beautiful knitting, twisted rib very interesting with the rest of pattern stitches." Both sweaters received all excellent marks.

Gay, I just love this sweater. I'll have to go through my stash of knitting mags and see if I have it. Great job and congrats.

I really like this sweater. The detail is just enough.

I've never used Cascade 220. Do you like it?
