crazy feelings sweater

Saturday, June 10, 2017

An oversized cotton sweater that feels more like a sweatshirt than a sweater.  
The sleeves are full.  And long.  When I cast on for them (two at at time), my initial instinct was to modify them.  Make them into a more "fitted" sleeve.  I resisted the urge, and am so happy I did so.    I feel as if it's a more updated look and just matches the look of the sweater.  I love the little "notches".  This sweater can be worn with the "notches" in the front or the back.  Fully reversible.
Dropped shoulders make it easy to fit many body types.  So does the fuller fit of the sweater.
It truly is like an oversized sweatshirt.  As Libby was taking these photos, she asked me if she could have this or I could make her one.  That pretty much seals the deal for a cool sweater in my book.  I told her we could share over the summer.  And she could keep it in her closet.  :)

I am truly a huge Wool and the Gang lover.  Receiving everything in one personalized box just makes me giddy.  And makes the entire project that much easier.  Yarn, pattern, needles... even the darning needle, all in one box.  I just love that.
