My First Flax Sweater

I completed my first “Flax” sweater a few weeks ago and it’s finally cool enough to show it off.  So without getting too wordy, I’m going to get to right what everyone cares about, pics and details.

Pattern: Flax by Tin Can Knits.


Yarn: Spunky Eclectic Targhee Classic

Look at that neck and garter insert

Colorway: Spiced Chai

No seriously. That sleeve! Simple awesome detail.

Size made: L

It fits like the best sweatshirt.

Mods: None and I want to make this again. Do I make it in handspun or some other Spunky Eclectic yarn? Next one, I think I’ll be making it a bit more fitted. But right now I’m pretty much obsessed with stripes so I’ll be putting this off for just a moment until I can work through this new obsession. Or possibly I need a Flax in stripes. I posted this all to Ravelry if you want to see my page.
