Purple Pull Irlandais

Pattern: Pull Irlandais #063-T11-378 by Phildar Design Team
Yarn: Alize Cashmira 100% wool, 350 g
Needle: 3.5 mm rib, 4 mm body
Time to knit: 12 days

Modifications: Knit in the round up to the armholes, the sleeves were also knit in the round, tubular cast on and bind off.
A few words about Cashmira - it's definitely one of my favourite yarns now - great stitch definition and elasticity and contrary to common belief that wool is itchy, it is soft and pleasant to the skin.

It was so freezing cold when we took the pictures, that I kept pulling the sleeves to cover at least partially my cold hands. I also tried to smile but the frozen skin of my face wouldn't bulge :)))

This sweater turned out to be one of this year's projects I enjoyed most - easy yet intricate enough design, beautiful well balanced cables, pleasant yarn. My purple pull irlandais is going to get lots of wear this winter, I can promise you that :)
And I'm still searching for a similar pattern to repeat the knitting delight.
