Introducing Acer, with big thanks to Megan for test knitting.

Inspired by the green Peace Fleece yarn as well as the charming wooden buttons, I named Acer for the noble maple tree.  It is the perfect sweater for a walk in the woods on an autumn day, sitting fireside after an afternoon of playing in the snow, or sitting in a café enjoying good company.

Worked from the top down, the neck edge and button bands are knit in one piece with the body leaving minimal finishing.  Waist shaping is added for a flattering fit.  The simple lines of Acer will show your favorite yarn and buttons off beautifully.

Love this. What a great, classic cardigan (and I'm a sucker for the green!!) Congrats, Kirsten, great job!

I love this!

Very nice - simple lines and very flattering!!!

Wow that's a beautiful sweater! It may even inspire me to get off crochet for a while and make myself one. The waist shaping is an inspired idea - boxy cardigans don't do it for me. Bravo!

lovely!! you amaze me with those design skills girl... love it.

The sweater is really pretty! I wonder why your Peace Fleece looks so much softer than my Peace Fleece! I guess because you blocked yours, and I have yet to block what I'm working on. It's really nice!

That is wonderful. i love the style.

Just yesterday I was thinking that I needed to make a cardi--I love this!!

Love, love, love this! I think I even have some peace fleece kicking around!

Love, love, love this! I think I even have some peace fleece kicking around!

Beautiful design.

Beautiful design.

This is just beautiful! Such a pretty pretty color too.

What a great design. I'd wager that it would be flattering on all body types. I think I would like to see mine in some Beaverslide from my stash. :)
