Most part of this sweater is worked with the stranded knitting technique. It is an inspiring project since you will not use any chart at all. All the color changes are improvised. All you do is changing one or two colors as you go. It is a perfect knit to use up all your stash yarn. There are no limits to how many or less colors you can use. Or how to combine them. Just go as crazy and free as you like.
The fit of the sweater is kept simple. It’s supposed to be a snuggle up sweater with quite some ease for a relaxed fit.
