This sweater is AMAZING! Review by Melanie Arden

When I saw this sweater on the cover of Interweave Knits, I knew I had to make it this gorgeous work of wearable art. The design seemed intimidating at first but when I sat down to knit the duster, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to make. This sweater is a joy to knit and wear. I have received numerous compliments on my "stylish sweater". I highly recommend this design to anyone who loves to knit. The Tilted Duster is AWESOME!
