Kate Spade Sweater on my Pinterest for weeks, but with a price tag of $195 there was no way that I was going to purchase it. So it stayed there on my inspiration board until I saw this:
This is the St. James sweater pattern on Ravelry. Does it not almost look identical? I just have to knit the body in a cream color yarn, the red in a black color yarn and the bottom sweater band in black and I got myself a "Kate Spade Bardot Sweater" look alike!
The Kate Spade sweater is made out of a Merino Wool/Cashmere blend, but I ordered Acrylic/Wool blend yarn. I know it is not as luxurious but I wanted something that was low maintenance while still cute and feminine, that I can wear on girl's night out or on date night with the boyfriend. Also, lets face it, I wanted it to be affordable, in total my sweater will only cost me $68.10 to make, that is including: Needles, Yarn and shipping.
How is that for a savings? I cannot wait till my order comes in and I can get started on my sweater!
*Note: I am sure you guys have guessed already but the red and white sweater is not mine nor did I take the picture. The picture belongs to a member on Ravelry, you can find it here.
