Summer Perth

At last, I'm done. Here is my summer version of "Perth" in Diamond's Superfine Egyptian Cotton, a DK weight mercerized cotton yarn.

Yes, I wish I'd made it an inch longer, but I was really worried about the amount of yarn I had on hand. And yes, those are different buttons from the ones I originally intended to use. Next one, I'll add a little bit more to the body. Still, I'm happy with this. Nice to have it done for Victoria Day. I'll make the necessary additions to the Ravelry download in the next 48 hours.


  1. It's lovely, and you'll enjoy wearing it with many colors.

  2. Thanks. I think that is a diplomatic way of saying,"Not another grey sweater!" What can I say? I like neutrals.

  3. The pattern stands out so nicely in the cotton. I like the short sleeves too. It looks terrific.
