while I was craving for the spring to finally make an appearance,
I saw Frank Tell's ready to wear collection
...Be careful what you wish for, since the cold lasted for much longer than I needed!
My version is simpler,
with sleeves that actually fit.
I wanted to be able to wear it under a coat, and in fact... I did.
More than once ...
This knit is a great stash buster!
can you see all the different yarns and textures?
This is my second attempt in re-creating a Frank Tell sweater (see previous one here ).
I had most of the yarns as leftovers from previous projects (a new sweater for close to 0$?? sign me in!!). I double and even triple some of the yarns not only to make it thicker, but also to have a wide variety of mélange colors.
...And I started to knit, without a pattern, just randomly switching yarns and stitches.
I made a "square" shaped, with a deep scoop neck.
There are no decreases for the armholes, just a boxy chunky knit.
I know it looks a little on the "crazy" side, but what can I say?
Sometimes I am in a twin set and look like I could have jumped out of a JCrew ads, but most of the time I like things a bit "not-so-preppy".
This is definitely a "preppy-me-not" sweater!!
will party here
