Well first, it is knit in one piece, just a touch of seaming under the arms and that is it. When you are done knitting, you are done.
It took me four days to knit this. It is not just me either. I checked out some other bloggers who have made this, it took them anywhere from four days to a week to finish theirs as well.
You can use up some yarn from your stash for the stripes. It is called the Drive-Thru sweater because it is cheap and quick, and that it is!
I also decided to make a matching hat, using the same color pattern. This is a Christmas present for Anna. I also have enough yarn in my stash to make the boys a sweater and hat too.
For this one I used size 10 needles, lion brand wool ease in bluebell (1 1/2 balls) and Paton's chunky in white for the stripes.
I can't wait to give this to her. I know it is a bit early to be making Christmas gifts, but not for me. It is so much more enjoyable for me if I start early and get it wrapped and put away. Then I can relax more during the season, and when people open their gifts, it is almost like a surprise to me too.
