This was a "recycled" yarn project from the thrift store from a striped sweater; I'd posted it as FO before, but the curling was getting really bad so it still needed work. It was a learning experience unravelling, washing, and winding all the yarn. I just winged the colors and length of use... this was a "practice changing colors" piece that turned out really cute. I hope it's even better now.
Thanks for the nice comments
