Recently, I had the opportunity to test the newest pattern by Heidi & Finn. It is an adorable ballet sweater that is so easy to make, you would be surprised. I love it when the finished product looks more complicated than it actually is. That is exactly what this pattern is, in fact, I would say it is a great project for someone very new to knits. I used the recommended walking foot and ballpoint needle, which really helps when working with knits and gives a more professional looking finished garment. The front is a mock wrap that slips on easily, and has two optional ties that wrap around the torso. I decided to make my ties in contrasting black jersey, but go to the Heidi & Finn blog to see more photos of this shrug in a more classic ballet style in pink, and with ribbon ties. I chose to show you what it looks like with jeans. Cute, right? And what a quick sew this pattern is...no joke! You could have this done in an hour or two. And I love how polished it looks inside and out when you're done. I'm not sure exactly when the pattern will be released, but when it does, I recommend you pick one up!
