Sixteen: The Shaun Sweater

As my last paycheck for a while will be electronically winging its way to the bank this weekend, yarn purchases are about to come to a screeching halt. (This would be the down side of opting out of the rat race to focus on What Really Matters in Life.) Therefore, the time is now to take stock of must-do projects (Christmas presents etc.) for the coming year, and add them to the stash.

One family member in particular needs a nice warm sweater before the snow flies. She has requested a replica of Shaun the sheep's lovely pullover, which I intend to reinterpret as a fabulously cabled cardigan.

The sweater:


Length (shoulder to waist): 35 inches Chest circumference: 41 inches

Wearer's weight: 160 lbs

Yarn: Alafoss Lopi


The lovely and talented Guinevere!
