Iced sweater

Project info
Iced by Carol Feller
Needles & yarn
US 11 - 8.0 mm
Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky
8 skeins = 1000.0 yards (914.4 meters), 904 grams
Knitwin"s stash

Did not do either decrease in waist or increases going down to the hips: just knit straight for a boxy look.

Lengthened the body of the sweater to 17” from the underarm stitches.

I swatched this. After knitting the sweater, I ended up with a 4”x4” swatch, and only 27 inches of yarn left after the bind off. WOW! I was lucky in yarn yardage. The 27” left over yarn scrap is DOCUMENTED in the picture on the sheep mug.

The sweater was a bit big, so I threw it into the dryer when it was damp and it did shrink up a bit.
