The Shawl Collared Sweater

This is a Shawl Collared Sweater from Lindsay at Cottage Home. She used a sweater knit material. I used what I have a lot of on hand right now and that was Fleece! Lindsay wrote this tutorial for LuvintheMommyhood’s tutorial battle sews vs. Knits. This tutorial has little sewing and she made her shawl from knit, so I guess she was on the knit side. I love how easy it was to make and when I showed my friends at work the shawl was only an oval many of them said, “Now, I could do that!”.
Lindsay also has a new Party Dress tutorial available at U-Create, where she is guest blogging.
PS. I am still working on the Village Frock and after binding the sleeves together, I realized that I needed more fabric. Hopefully I will have good news soon, with a new dress to show off!
Happy Crafting!
