This is the beatnik babe sweater from the book Ohio Knitting Mills. I used Manos del Uruguay in calypso, citron and some kind of grey. The book called for 4 skeins of the main colors but I only used three. The facings are a pink worsted weight. I added a lot of bust shaping using short rows for a close fit. I lowered the neckline a little as well. Over all I love the way it turned out!
