I was perusing the Purl Bee for new patterns and came across this book they posted, Reversible Knitting: 50 Brand-New, Groundbreaking Stitch Patterns by Lynne Barr. What caught my eye was this sweater by Wenlan Chia:
What the hell! Why does my first sweater ever have to be this complicated thing? It looks like it's knit with cotton, which I hate because cotton sweaters like this are super bulky and heavy. And I would probably use different colors.
Anyway, planning to cop this book soon.
