I picked up Carol Feller's pattern, Fisherman Twist, at a print-pattern sale at my LYS. I happened to have a bag of Adagio, a wonderful llama/silk blend from Skacel that's sadly been discontinued, that I thought would be just perfect for this pattern. Turns out, I was right!
I'm very happy with how this sweater turned out. After a full wet blocking, the thing grew into a giant mess, so I lightly felted it in a very hot dryer and it turned into just the perfect size for me. (And bonus, when you lightly felt llama & silk it turns into an amazingly scrumptious fabric!) I styled it up by pairing it with a one-shoulder chiffon maxi dress, tights, wedge cowboy boots, a long necklace, and a large envelope clutch. It would be wonderful with jeans, too, but y'all know that's not how I roll. ;)
So here's the rundown, style-blog style:
Pattern: Fisherman Twist by Carol Feller
Yarn: Skacel Collection, Inc. Adagio (discontinued)
Dress: Eric Daman for Charlotte Russe, thrifted (similar)
Boots: Old Navy, thrifted (similar)
Snake Ring: Vintage, thrifted (similar)
Necklace: Handmade by me (similar)

This sweater-over-a-maxi style is great for an environment where you don't know what the weather will be like...because even without the sweater, you still look perfectly put together! Would you ever wear a sweater over a dress? Let me know in the comments!
