Unearthed! An original 1970's sweater. Look at this interesting construction! The rows start at the hem and go vertically up over the shoulder and down the back. This construction type is popping up more and more. My toddler jacket is made this way, vertically. It just goes to show that ideas get recycled. This is made in an acrylic yarn, and it looked like worsted weight, but was crocheted pretty tightly. It probably has a little better drape because of it's age and wear.
This sweater inspired a project I am currently working on. I'll get you a sneak peek and see if you can figure it out.
