My endless sweater is finally finally finally done and I LOVE it. I had originally intended for this to be a slouchy pullover for wearing around the house, but the delicate stitch pattern works well for pairing with boots and jeans.
My brother (he does cool photography!) did a mini photo shoot with me over the weekend. I won't be writing up the pattern for this sweater anytime soon, but my pattern notes are included below.
