I called this sweater "Facile" (it means "easy, effortless" in French) because the construction of this sweater is very simple.
But the stitch patterns are arranged in such a way, that creates a lovely shaping and makes the sweater flow around your body.
Without much effort, you create a flattering silhouette that is also very comfortable to wear.
This sweater is one of those projects that instantly become your favourites. The original sweater (the one I occasionally wear when I make video tutorials) is over three years old. I still love it to pieces and wear it quite often.
It is knit with silk yarn, but for the sample sweater described in the pattern, I used a different yarn - bamboo. It has a lovely feel and drape and is not as expensive as silk.
Why did I think about the cost of yarn? Because this pattern is perfect for a "first sweater" project. And normally we don't splurge on yarn when we make a sweater for the first time.
If you decide to make this sweater with silk, you can easily do it. As long as the yarn is in DK weight (digit 3 on the yarn label), you will have no problem knitting this sweater with silk.
The pattern provides instructions for five regular sizes - to fit bust 88 (92, 96, 100, 104) cm / 34.5 (36.25, 37.75, 39.25, 41)” plus instructions for three slim sizes - to fit bust 76 (80, 84) cm / 30 (31.5, 33)”.
Happy knitting :-)
