Traditional and Trendy

Equally lovely is this sweater pattern I found on ravelry. The Levenwick sweater is a perfect balance of traditional and trendy.
I still need to find buttons to finish this off (I used a sweater pin for the photos just to show how it's such a stunning asymmetric finish).
The details really make this sweater. The neck and front are almost lace-like. And I learned some new techniques in knitting up this sweater, particularly the i -cord bind-off finish that's on the cuffs and the bottom of the sweater.
I'm definitely not an experienced knitter and I found this pattern came together nicely. When I needed some additional help on the bind-off and other areas, I just googled them. There are tons of videos out there to provide help.
And the best part about this sweater …
It's for me! I never knit for myself!! I can 't wait for the cooler weather so I can wear it.
