sprang sweaters


I’ve made a variety of sprang sweaters (child size). Using cheap cotton, the type you use to knit dishrags, the same number of threads and always using the same frame, I’ve been exploring different patterns. Clearly different patterns have different amounts of lateral stretch.

The moral of the story is (as in knitting) always, always make a sample swatch first.
