Cozy in Osprey

It’s the first day of spring. The weather is completely dreary and it snowed while I walked to the grocery store, but we made it!

I might still need to wrap myself up in this sweater for awhile still, though.

I took these photos in a bit of a rush, they’re not great – I probably should’ve put on some lipstick, hm?

Yarn: Quince & Co Osprey in Pea Coat

Pattern: My own. Bottom-up oversized raglan with knit-in seed stitch borders, i-cord edges, a little waist shaping and a nice long collar. I didn’t do buttonholes, with the intention of putting in a zipper. We’ll see how long it takes me to get around to that! I’m not sure if I’ll write this one up – it’s quite basic, and I’m sure there are very similar sweater patterns out there already.

I didn’t notice that line across the back yoke (dye lot difference, I guess, even though I bought all the yarn at the same time) until I was looking at the photos just now, but it won’t bother me.

    That looks very cozy, but definitely more elegant that a sweatshirt!

    I actually thought you did have lipstick on. You and the sweater both look great!

    It’s beautiful. I do hope you’ll write it up, though. It’s your combination of details that make it so special. It would take me quite a lot of work to put this together even one-tenth as elegantly as you have! And I double-love zipped cardigans.

    I love seed stitch too. I hope you write a pattern because this is a great cardigan/jacket.

    No there are not of other jacket cardigans quite like this one. Please write it up. Your patterns are extraordinarily well written!

    PLEASE write up a pattern!!! (with buttonholes). There is NOTHING out there like this. It’s classic with an edge, and flattering for so many body types. I’ve been searching for this for years! PLEASE!!!
