Here is the Picovoli which I finished today. It is pretty fast and easy to knit. A challenge for me was to change the gauge; the pattern requires sport weight yarn and I used worsted weight: Fantasy Naturale in a pastel variegated. This sweater is knit from the top down and has no seams so you can try it on as you go. It was very interesting to knit. Changing gauges meant that I was sometimes using a calculator as I went; multiplying all the stitch requirements by .75. I am fairly happy with the fit. It is a very comfortable sweater as Fantasy Naturale is 100 % cotton.
