The pattern calls for TWO yarns (Drops Safran and a Sport weight Wool Yarn) and is crocheted in two colors changing colors at the end of each round.

Look at this stash, treasures untold, how many fibers can one cabinet hold…?

Do you also dream of using the fibers you have carefully curated over the years? Then look no further than the Vintage Waves Sweater. Vintage Waves is a top down circular yoke sweater designed for comfort and stash busting in mind. Not only will you walk away with a new top, but also with the immense satisfaction of having used stash yarn to breathe life and memories into a new garment.

And hey, if you had to purchase some yarn to make the sweater, It was in your stash and you used it. I’m not here to judge your craft, I’m here to hopefully inspire you. Let your color choices shine with this simple stitch.

The pattern has also been tested with a combination of :
Lionbrand Oh baby organic Cotton and Patons Kroy Socks
Drops Safran and Fingering Weight Merino
