    Very classic. Not flashy but serves the purpose. I like this set very much.

    Kyntheligronan – you could always go out to a thrift or consignment store and rescue some old sweaters if you can’t find a heavy-knit fabric anywhere else – that’s what I did. Good luck!

    Recycling a sweater is a really good idea! I can’t believe we have not thought of that. Seriously, that’s why it is so good that we can share all our ideas!!

    Great pattern.. I love the idea of recycling sweaters. I have been tempted to make some of these “heavy-knit” items you’ve been showcasing recently but had no idea where to find the fabric. I can totally do this! Thanks!
