‘Eightfold recycled sweater’ because she has made from this one S sized sweater eight projects: a pumpkin vase, an headband, an embroidery hoop pumpkin, a dollar store vase, a lumbar pillow, stuffed pumpkins, a cuff bracelet and a neck warmer :)
You can find a picture of all projects in the tutorial.

She has drawn a ‘paper doll’ of herself and simply ‘tried on’ different sweater lengths, necklines and sleeve lengths! :)

A great idea, the climate sweater: the colours show the temperature deviations from the global average temperature from 1961-1990!
