pomegranate

A Christmas sweater for myself, made with some squishy yarn I got on my birthday. I fell in love with this design as soon as I saw it, and the end result didn't disappoint me. The back features the same lace pattern than the front (sorry, but couldn't get a decent picture of it), which although it looks quite intricate, was actually not so difficult to memorize.
Pattern: Pomegranate, by Bonnie Sennott
Yarn: Quince & Co. Chickadee, 6 skeins in Peacock.
Used 3.5 skeins for the body and 1 skein for each sleeve. The neckband didn’t take much, so there was about 30 gr left of the total 6 skeins.
Also, it grew just a tiny bit after blocking.
 
Project page on Ravelry, where I have a few notes of the changes I made (not many, mainly the sleeves).
