Sari Ribbon Sweater – Finally Done!!

Yeah, I finished this sweater. It’s made out of recycled silk sari fabric that I got from Darn Good Yarn. Nicole, the president of the company designed the pattern.


Here’s the front. The bottom of the sweater is open and the sleeves are 3/4 length.


This is the back. The sweater is knitted from the bottom back up and over the shoulders to the front panels all in one piece. The slubs in the ribbon are part of the charm of the ribbon.

Ruffled Shrug

I finished knitting and crocheting this shrug. It was really easy except I kept running out of yarn. I had to order more yarn three times. I’m going to wear this at work when I go into freezing rooms. The shrug is fairly heavy so it should keep me nice and toasty.

These pictures aren’t the best as I couldn’t take them in an area where the background was the same.

Detail of bottom

This was made out of four different yarns. There are stripes of handpainted yarn and wool yarn run with eyelash yarn. The bottom has some rows of sari ribbon.
