The bateau neckline has always been a favorite of mine, so when this pattern was featured nearly a week ago on Yarnspirations, I bookmarked it for consideration. A couple of days ago I bought a boat-neck tee on sale at Gap, which prompted me to take another look at this sweater.
The free pattern is simple and straightforward, stockinette with a little ribbing, and I prefer projects that offer more of a challenge. But it’s still cold and winter in these parts, and my husband and I have been bingeing most evenings on British mystery series. (The best so far have been Broadchurch, which was addictive from the first episode, and Shetland, which started slow but hooked us at episode three. Now taking a humor break with season three of Grace and Frankie ; Lily Tomlin is brilliant!) Anyway, I figure the easy Bateau sweater will be perfect for those nights spent in front of that glowing screen. I love the yarn, which appears pink in the picture but is actually called “orchid”, and contains a “subtle touch of sparkles”. Calls for size 6 (US) needles and seven skeins of Patons Glam Stripe.
