A few years ago Ann and Kay invented a fun project called The Perfect Sweater. It was very democratic. Readers voted on all the sweater features–yarn weight and type, sweater state, sleeve type, neckline, and so on. The winners in each category were put together and identified as The Perfect Sweater. As I remember, it was to be a long-sleeved pullover with gentle shaping, a ribbed crew neck and, evidently, hemmed bottom edge and cuffs (since mine has both of those, and I wouldn’t have gone in that direction on my own). My neck, hem, and cuffs also have contrast picot edges, which I believe were sanctioned options. I think the chosen yarn was Cascade 220.
Ladies, I’m sure I have some of these things wrong–corrections very welcome!
At any rate, I still have, and wear, my Perfect. It has undergone some changes. It’s now a cardigan (yes, scissors, argh) with little buttons and loop closures. I love the color, and it’s a Perfect little jacket over a t-shirt or blouse.
Do you still have your Perfect?
