Handspun Handknit Sweater


I made this sweater before I was doing only natural dyes, so it is not made with naturally dyed yarn. Much like the popular Medium is the Message sweater, this yarn doesn't use that much yarn- though I would guess it still took 600 yards.


Simple raglan construction, I used two yarns alternating every two rows to blend all the differnt colored skeins I was using together.


No shaping, just some deep 2x2 ribbing at the bottom. Just looks like there is shaping since the dress form has no arms so it creates much more of an hourglass effect.

Hmm, maybe I should do something still with the sleeves so they don't roll...
