The best thing about having a bi-annual closet clean is rediscovering loved garments. I made this pure wool knit striped sweater at the end of last winter, the coldest on record for more than 40 years (it actually snowed in Wellington!). It was worn on a regular basics immediately because it’s lovely and soft and toasty.
Two patterns were mashed up to make it - Simplicity 7084 for the body and hip tie, and Simplicity 8172 (from the ‘80’s) for the sleeves.
