Adelaide for the Olympics

When the winter olympics were coming up I was deep into my lucca shawl, and knowing that I was about to watch a lot of distracting television, I cast on a simple sweater: Quince and Co’s Adelaide.

It’s a simple top-down raglan knit in the round with a pretty, but easy, lace panel. At first I was a little disappointed in the pattern. It’s just so simple, I felt like I could have modified something I already have. It turned out to be a good purchase, though–I love this sweater. The fit and amount of ease are absolutely perfect, and now I think this will be the pattern I modify for future variations!

Yarn is just Knit Pick’s basic Wool of the Andes, in a beautiful soft gray. Since I had worsted and the pattern calls for aran, I ended up knitting a size bigger. It’s a rather rough yarn for this elegant pattern, but I actually like the somewhat rustic feel of it. Working and living in the year-round chill of the San Francisco and Marin headlands lends itself well to tough wool sweaters!
