Remember how, two years later, in college, it was suddenly everyone's all-time favorite movie? Yeah, me too. I also remember thinking, "Where can I get that sweater?" Well, now you can; I can knit it for you:D Here are the measurements of the baby cardigan seen in the picture, Laying flat measurement: -It measures 16 " from TOP to hem - 10" from under arm to hem. - Sleeve length from under arm 8" - 13" from arm pit to arm pit, - across the shoulders is 13" long I used pure virgin wool, www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=389690534424042&set=a.389690014424094.89... I used up 2 white yarn,1 dark brown and 1 grey. These are all natural colors from the sheep. Material is 100% virgin wool (Sheep wool) Care Instruction: Hand wash in mild detergent in cold water and lay flat to dry. Please do not iron If you would like me to knit you this cardigan your size please, convo me. Prices will vary according to yarns chosen and sizes... All of my sweaters are hand knit by me (no machines) in a smoke-free and clean environment. The Dude cardigan was inspired by the movie, The Big Lebowski. The original, as featured in the movie, is a Pendleton sweater made at Winona Knitting Mills (now closed down) during the sixties and seventies. Made in a smoke free home. Note: Colors may vary slightly due to monitor settings.

I think summer is over! Darn it!!!! The last two days have sure felt cool. I've heard different people say they've turned on their furnace. I guess it is to be expected since it's now October but I sure hate to see summer go. Brrr... it's getting chilly out there! Not to worry, I am stocking warm and colorful items for my ♥'ly customers. When the weather gets cold (like, now) you will need to have something around your neck, head, hands.
