shirred yoke short-sleeve sweater








Over the summer I finished knitting two short sleeved
cardigans ~ this is my favorite of the two:
I salvaged the super-soft sport weight wool yarn from a Goodwill sweater,
which apparently I never photographed
before ripping apart.
It is a great summer sweater and also works well
with a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath.
 
Don't you love Drops free patterns?
... and I see
as well...

  3. Looks wonderful and it is a frugal sweater too since you've crafted it with "old" wool. Sadly, I don't think it would suit my larger form though it looks beautiful on you.

  8. I can picture you with a long sleeve tee under your sweater, drinking a cup of tea, and being so proud of your creation.

  10. Lovely.
    I have the long sleeved cardigan version planned with wool at the ready if I can find the time to start it. I have made many Garnstudio patterns and I love them all.

  11. I can't hardly believe you made it from a old sweater you took apart.
    How great is that!

  13. Cute sweater! And it looks comfortable. I need to get back to knitting but have lost a bunch of weight and am waiting to get closer to my goal so I'll know what size to knit. Hate to go to a lot of work and have something I can't wear very long. Thanks for sharing your work with us. It's very inspiring!
