If you’re anything like me you’ve got a skein or 3 of beautiful sock yarn you don’t want to use up for socks because it’s just too pretty for your feet. Knit from a skein or two of sock yarn (and scraps few extra scraps) Club Sammy is the perfect sweater for that skein of sock yarn. Finally, one skein is a sweater’s lot!

About the piece:
With super simple construction and minimal shaping this Club Sammy is ready for you to hit the streets and start strutting! Knit in a size 6 on a model with a 35”bust. With a lot of negative ease and a unique neck line this sweater really shows off that skein of self striping you caught in an update that one time.
