Knitted in DROPS Flora hand dyed by me. I had taken some time (2 years) off from dyeing yarn, just no time or space for it! Excuses. Anyway. This knit was such fun from the dye pans into the bind off. It fits comfy, like a slightly oversized college sweater and is airy but warm (by alpaca & wool yarn)

Pattern

Pattern by me – inspired by various sweater patterns from Joji Locatelli, Pickles.com and Carrie Bostic Hoge.
