I like making these sweaters. Each are one of. I don’t use a pattern. I simply let the materials I have on hand tell me how big and what direction to go.
This swingy flouncy cardigan style or sweater jumper combines recycling with hand knit, hand-felt and crochet. The main body of the piece is comprised of many different bits from recycled sweaters. There is cashmere, cotton, wool and acrylic in content. The maroon panels are hand felt with faux fur felted in.
The hem is hand knit. The bottom hem has transitions in color to work the patchwork concept into the piece further. The yarn is a mohair type acrylic. The front closure bands are also hand knit with the finishing in crochet.
Sleeves are 3/4.
Button down front to wear open or closed. Layer it over a cami, T or turtleneck.
Lots of texture and color.
Colors are primarily browns with blue, maroon and multi.
Suggest dry cleaning.
