Isn’t it lovely?
It’s not crochet, but this is one of my favorite vintage/historical yarnworks. This wool sweater is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is ca. 1895. The mutton sleeves are just wonderful! I would wear this today, wouldn’t you? One day I am going to make something like it…one day. But until then, it will be one of my favorite inspiration pieces. If you have a favorite inspiration piece, or if you have made a project based on an inspiration piece, I’d love to hear about it!
