Dulaan - sherbet sweater

Dulaan - sherbet sweater

Yarn: Tahki Yarns Dazzle, 100% wool, self-striping, bought on eBay. I had five balls, each 100m/108yd/50gr, and I have about enough left to make a baby hat.

Needles: Denise Interchangables US9; 4st/in. The yarn label said US10.5 needles, 3st/in, and I didn't think that looked right. I much prefer the fabric I got on the smaller needles.

Pattern: Child's drop shoulder sweater from A Handy Book of Sweater Patterns by Ann Budd, size 26", which looks to be about a size 4.

Mods: none. I spit-spliced the yarn to maintain the striping pattern, and I matched the stripes on the front and back, plus the sleeves match each other.
