After deciding which sweater to stitch, the team still had the difficult choice of picking their yarn and colors. Luckily, this team has strong preferences making the decision a quick and easy one.
The original samples were made in Swish Worsted, a super soft and squishy 100% Fine Superwash Merino Wool. We are all huge fans of this yarn so yarn selection was an easy decision.
The decision for which colors and how many to use was a bit more challenging and we are all adding our own spin on our color choices. Because the stitch pattern for both sweaters is a simple extended crochet stitch it makes changing up the width and number of stripes, or color blocking, an easy modification.
Stitching Rosie, the raglan sweater are Ranielle, Liz G, Andi, Liz L, and Regan
Stitching Chelsea, the circular yoke sweater, are Kate and Jen
