Maude Louise

Maude-Louise-header

When I learned to knit, my goal was always to be able to create my own sweaters. Maude Louise is the first adult sized sweater that I made, and remains one of my favorites. Knit in pieces and then seamed, Maude Louise is not the simplest of sweaters, but with the fitted waist, pretty detailing, and vintage style, it’s always an easy sweater to wear. Since Maude Louise is knit in worsted weight yarn with zero ease at the bust, the pieces work up fast. Choose a sturdy yarn with good drape, such an alpaca or silk blend, for the best look. The fitted waist and flared hips are flattering to most figures.
