So I was out on Friday night signing up the boys for soccer this summer, and I saw a woman wearing this gorgeous sweater. I've been poking around on Ravelry some, looking for it, but I'm not having much luck going through the hundreds of patterns... I don't know what terminology I might use to make the search easier. I'm hoping someone knows of a pattern similar, or can help make my search more effective. Maybe this style of sweater has a name I don't know about, or something.
So. The sweater (sorry I'm such a blabbermouth LOL). It was a cardigan, and held closed with 2 (maybe 3) buttons in the front. The top and bottom of the sweater were done in garter stitch, I believe. The middle of the sweater was done in ribbing (2x2 I'd guess, or close to it). So from the top of the ribcage (right where an empire waist would fall) down there was a good 6-8" of ribbing. This is where it buttoned, too. It made for really great shaping, the way the ribbing caused the sweater to fit snugly in the middle area.
The top of the sweater lay open (due to the buttons only in the middle), and it had a large collar... not sure if collar is the right term? Lapels-ish? Something :?? Sorry, like I said, I'm not up on sweater terminology LOL
Anyway, if anyone knows of a sweater pattern similar to this, I'd be so grateful! Thank you!
