I have finally gotten around to taking pictures of my new sweater! I must say, this pattern came into my life at the perfect time. The back story: I was feeling a little bummed that I didn’t really get to wear any sweaters this year. The weather has been unseasonably warm (~70 degrees everyday). Since the cold weather decided to skip the Bay Area, I decided that short sleeve sweaters were a must. Boy was I pleased when the Interweave Knits, Spring 2015 issue arrived. The designs this season were awesome! I immediately put 4 of the sweaters in my queue.
The One Way Tee by Debbie O’Neill was a fairly easy knit. There is a lot of stockinette in between the lace panels, which means it was quick knit as well as TV watching friendly. One pattern change I did make was to knit the body in the round. I am glad I did this as it significantly cut down on my finishing time. I mean why weave in more ends than needed? When trying on my finished sweater, I was so pleased with the fit. I mean after all the work I put into creating a swatch, I was a little nervous that my efforts would have a bad result. I think most knitters biggest fear is an ill-fitting garment that took weeks to make.
Here are some pics of my new “baby.” The details of the pattern and process are here on my Ravelry page.
Now that my sweater is complete I have entered the all too familiar cycle of…What next?

Wow! That turned out great. The color is just beautiful. Congrats on a happy new arrival.
Thanks so much!
That color is gorgeous, I always love to read Interweave Knits.
Thanks! I was originally going to go with lime green, but when yarn shopping the peach really “spoke” to me
Thanks! Yes they are my go to knitting magazine
Wow, that color is beautiful on you! The fit is great too. Is the open pattern very see through? Would you rate the pattern as intermediate or advanced? TIA. 🙂
Thanks so much for the lovely words! The lace panel is a little too see through for me (especially for work). I wear a nude camisole underneath and it doesn’t take away from the design of the sweater. I would rate this pattern intermediate. As long as you can yarn over and decrease you should be good to go.
