This sweater was created to let handspun yarn shine. My usual approach to spinning is to look for the unique superpowers of a fleece and highlight these characteristics in the yarn I make.

The sweater includes side shaping to fit a curvy body of many sizes. My sweater is knitted in a size “Josefin,” which is a size medium that has been modified with hip and upper-arm measurements in a
size large.
