FO: Dolman sweater

This sweater is based on the High Relief Dolman from knit.wear spring 2013. I've been wanting to try knitting some of these more boxy pullover styles. I had the Cascade Pima Tencel yarn in my stash for ages, and each of the two colors was not enough for a full sweater. The yarn is really drapey (is that a word?) to the point of being droopy so I figured it would be great for this pattern. I made mine a little narrower than the smallest size, so it has a less pronounced dolman look. I also created a lower neckline because I don't like necklines that cut across my neck. For the top part, I did a simple 2x2 diagonal rib pattern.

I'm happy with the end result. The cotton yarn and the colors are great for spring and summer. It's a loose fit, but the draping prevents it from looking bulky.

I really like this. Besides the great mods the color combo is very refreshing. Chloe
