This sweater is a bottom-up yoke sweater with lots of opportunities to customize the shape and placement of motifs. The class offers lots of technical tidbits from casting on to binding off.
I used Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport, because I wanted a soft, lofty, woolly and wonderful yarn. The color range let me find tones that showed up well against the light background (ash) and the darker background (stone).
P.S. Sipsey was my dog/best friend for over 17 years; she was squirrel crazy. When choosing motifs for this pattern, I started with the Chunky Squirrel, and added the other fall-forest motifs to keep a theme.
