FO-Basic Chunky Sweater
1 Attachment(s)
I know some people aren't very fond of chunky knits. but I'm telling ya, if you need a quick knit this is it! It took about 5 shours total including sewing up the sleeves/pits. It's pretty boring, but I just wanted a nice comfy, baggy sweater for basic wear. And its soooooooo soft!

That's nice! What yarn did you use? I think that makes all the difference.

Here it is closer for you, Suze :)

It is a no name yarn (100% wool) that I bought in Italy. I think as far as gauge it would be similar to Blue Sky Alpaca chunky or Rowan Biggy...but I don't know how those would drape compared to this.

Thanks, great photos. I didn't think I would ever like a chunky sweater but I sure love that one. :)
Great job,

How is the DNA scarf coming? It looks like such a cool pattern.

I love big ol' comfy sweaters, too. It's beautiful!

I don't have any immediate plans to be in Italy soon (read that EVER), but when I see beautiful yarn and don't know what to make with it--I will definitely keep this in mind. I'd love to do a quick knit one of these days.

I can't believe it's done already! We saw only the sleeves and a little of the body yesterday. Whoa, Nelly!
