Another "Scrappie" (made from scraps) Sweater for Charity
This charity sweater is made from scraps, odds & ends of skeins that I used for different projects. I wanted to stripe the sleeve too but ran out of one of the blues so made them a solid green instead. This is made from Red Heart SuperSaver worsted weight yarn knit with my Silver Reed, SK 860. It is a size 4 & will fit a pre-schooler. The sweater is a raglan sleeve crew neck pullover, designed by KnitWare that is hip length to cover the whole torso. My Scrappies look as good as my family sweaters & I do make scrappies for my neices & nephews kids too. I am very pleased with the way this sweater turned out.
I have had several orders come in so will be knitting them for the next few days. Then, back to my "Scrappies."
