Pattern: Green Gable by Zephyr Style
Yarn: Bonsai Japanese Maple 6.5 skeins
Needle: US 6
Notes: This was a very easy pattern and the result is cute and comfortable. I wouldn't recommend the bamboo yarn for the pattern because it does stretch with wear. I've stitched a ribbon into the back of the neck to keep it from sagging. Still, this is a sweater for short-term wearing. It was lovely to work with and it feels nice, but I think I'll be sticking to wool blends for my future garments. I still have some bonsai left and I'm still trying to decide what I'll do with it.
I didn't make a particular size, I cast on for the smallest size and worked the raglan shaping until it fit me. The end result was probably somewhere between the 32'' and the 36'' sizes. This was a nice instant gratification project, especially since I've been knitting so many socks lately. I would be willing to make the pattern again, but my next zephyr pattern will be Wicked. I've already swatched for it and found a gauge that is suitable for my yarn. I can't wait. :)
