FO: il grande favorito

Here’s my finished il grande favorito.  Per the pattern, you’re supposed to use two thin yarns held together but I used Quince and Co Osprey, in Kumlien’s Quill, which I think is technically undyed.

I knit it otherwise exactly as per pattern.  If I made this again I might use a thinner yarn.  Osprey is classified as an aran weight yarn, but I think it’s on the fatter side of that.  This was actually the second pattern I tried with this yarn.  The first pattern was knit on US8 needles and after a couple of inches it was so dense it could literally stand up on its own.  This sweater was knit on US11 needles and it’s still a little denser than I’d really like, but I also didn’t want to go up another needle size, either.
