Last year in February, hundreds of us ‘banged out a sweater’, the Stopover. This is the perfect time to wear it, even down south it’s cold! I used the Istex Lettlopi yarn but find it nearly impossible to wear without wearing something underneath. I have tried blocking it twice with a high quality woolens detergent and even tried a white vinegar rinse I read about online. It softened up some, but wore it the other day and was repentant the whole day. It was so uncomfortable around my neck.
The yarn was easy to use, inexpensive and I’d like to keep using it, as I would like to WEAR MY SWEATER, but need some advice! What did the rest of you do to make it wearable?
Thanks so much! Rosemary
