I have this amazing skein of yarn and a little over a month. Can it be done?
I thought I really had this figured out but after talking to Chawne this morning about the properties of the yarn, I’ve got so many new ideas. This yarn is very sturdy and chubby, so I’m going for something jacket-y. I want a big tall neck, but do I want a cardigan or pullover? I think I want 3/4 sleeves. Symmetrical fronts or not? A big neck or cardigan would make it easy to put on and take off, and since I’m making outerwear, that is important.
Contenders/Ideas from Ravelry:
And Ideas from my Woolen Thoughts Pinterest board:
- Seriously, look at this thing it is amazing but I’d never be able to use a shoulder bag.
- POCKETTTTSSSSS. Like maybe something like this but with a big cowl and shorter sleeves?
- The shape of this is amazing, but maybe the body a little shorter. An awesome raglan detail to jazz it up? Longer in the back than front?
- And this. This is pretty much pefect except I’d like that higher neck.
Damn, I love sweaters. No doubt, I’ll just make something up as I go along and hope I don’t get carried away and run out of yarn.
Are you going? Are you sweatering? Do you have one of the coveted gigantic balls of Empire and know what you want to do with it?
