Cotton Candy Sweater

Inspired by Ana!

The center panel of this was knit on the Brother 260, T5. It was a snap, just working 10 rows of color A, alternating 2 rows of B with 2 rows of A, then 10 rows of B, 2 rows C, 2 rows B...etc. For the neckline I bound off then cast on so there are no shoulder seams.

After blocking, I used alternating colors to crochet around the entire rectangle, linking the last round together to make side seams. Altogether, I think it took about 6 hours to make this entire sweater and I love wearing it.

BTW, I washed it in the machine on the delicate cycle and machine dried it, too, and there was no shrinkage!
