I loved it and wore it regularly all through high school. (As I was living in California, I guarantee you I was the only one in my school with a sweater like that!)
Today my daughter put it on, and she commented, “Wow, this is itchy wool! But then I guess it is made to be worn as a jacket.” Oh yes indeed. Firmly knit, it is not only warm but blocks wind well too.
Later on today I decided to sort some of my extensive yarn stash into projects. I came across a large amount of Rauma’s “Fin Ull Garn” in two colors: grey and white. Ah hah! A ready made project: recreate this sweater for one of the grandchildren. So I opened Excel and graphed the pattern. Here is a copy of it for anyone who might be interested in PDF.
As I dug through my stash, I realized I remembered where I bought each skein, cone, hank or ball of yarn! Please tell me I’m not the only one who can remember that but can forget birthdays and other events!
