When you look at this sweater, you will see splashes of water, and puddles to begin the design. Then on upwards, baby ducks swimming on the lake. On upwards yet some more, you will see adult ducks flying gently over marsh grass, with fluffy clouds above. This sweater is lightweight and so very comfortable. Made in one piece, starting at bottom ribbing. Circular needles needed for around shoulders, which helps in continuing the pattern with ease! All of us at Frugal Haus have worn ours almost out. We love it that much! This uses fingering yarns, and knitting needles, US # 5. Dont let the fingering yarn scare you! It is fun to knit once you get going.
