View Full Version : looking for cardigan using thick natural sheep wool

Hi! I'm about to start my second sweater. I bought some natural sheep's wool on Martha's Vineyard this summer. Plain beige I guess. I have about 5 big skeins, not sure exactly how much. I really want to make an easy cardigan, my first cardigan. Want it to be very natural like they made 100 years ago but also I'd like to add some pretty colours around the top. A wee bit of fair isle I guess.

Anybody made a sweater like this or seen a great pattern? I'm searching now.... will let you know if I find anything. Oh also, does that stuff soften up a bit coz it seems a little scratchy right now. Smells great however.
