Cropped Linen

[advertisement: unpaid links]

I made this sweater to measure on a request by my aunt. She asked for a white, cropped, oversized, long sleeved, 100% linen sweater to wear in summer. Here it is, a ridiculously wide rectangle with sleeves. I am sure she is going to love it as if it was black, I just would keep it.

The pattern is my own, I have used 414g of Schoppel El Linio, a chain-plied 100% linen yarn. It combines the classic linen structure and feel with a bit of elasticity due to its construction. It really is a pleasure to work with this yarn. Well done, Schoppel!

This sweater also was an item on my WIP Bingo sheet, the linen sweater. One more done!
