This blanket was created from a collection of recycled sweaters. I had great fun with this project, along with my handwork group friends at Emerson Waldorf School. We used about 32 different sweater pieces of wool, cashmere and angora. We also preserved some of the pockets, cuffs and fringe from the original sweaters, to create a fun and whimsical blanket.

This imaginative blanket project was found in one of my favorite books, Alter knits, by Leigh Radford.
