Basic sweater

This is the back view of the finished sweater, modified a little from the basic sweater in Fee's book. It was fun to make, and I like the color combination. The hardest part was getting the body size right, I had to restart three times.

To knit this type of sweater, you basically knit three tubes, the body and two arms, then connect them all together on a circular needle and decrease up to the neckline. Fee gives liberal credit in her book to the ideas of Elizabeth Zimmerman.
