Mercedes approached me about being on her blog tour for her sweater pattern and class - The Seamless Artesemia Sweater and I fell in love with the her pattern. I'm a big fan of top down sweaters as they are very easy to customize to your body type. Even better, the sweater is knit in one of my favorite yarns - Venezia Worsted - a luscious blend of 70% Merino Wool and 30% Mulberry Silk.
Venezia Worsted is available in more than 40 rich colors. Each 218 yard skein offer a subtle sheen and a complex twist that showcases stitch definition beautifully. It is a personal favorite as I love the hand and can wear it next to my skin without any itchiness. The Merino wool in Venezia Worsted, lends stability and memory, as the Mulberry Silk contributes drape and shine.
The Artemesia Sweater features a number of techniques that helps create a beautiful finished garment. Set in sleeves, short row neck shaping and waist shaping help to flatter any body. The lace panel and set in pockets are lovely details that distinguish this pattern from others. There are 2 sleeve length options for this sweater - although I am quite partial to the 3/4 length sleeve.
This feminine sweater is figure flattering and comes in a wide range of sizes from 30.25" - 55" finished bust measurement. Equally comfortable with your favorite jeans or a cute skirt, this will easily become your go-to sweater.
