the classic

The Classic.  Truly a sweater I can't recommend enough.

I love everything about this sweater. 

It hit the sweet spot on needle size, on yarn choice, on wearability and on a piece that will fit into my wardrobe for many years.   
I'm not going to lie.  The twisted rib is a bear.  Even more so trying to rip it out.  I mistakenly took the back for the front and the front for the back, ribbing for 4.5" on the front which the pattern didn't call for and had to rip out 2.5" of twisted rib.  Ouch!  I tried the freezer trick but this did not help one little bit.  
I ended up cutting off the extra 2.5 and miraculously getting the stitches back on the needles.  
A simple raglan sleeve is my favorite fit.  

Pattern:  The Classic by Espace Tricot  (Free pattern!)
Yarn:  Held Double:
           Sonder Yarn Co. Sunday Morning 4 ply.  3 skeins in Cover to Cover.  
           Sonder Yarn Co. Halo.  3 skeins in Rocket
Needle Size:  US 7
Size:  I knit a smaller size than I normally wear because I did not want the 10" of positive ease.  I have about 5" of positive ease.  
Modifications:  I knit 2" more on the sleeve before starting the twisted rib.
