This project was inspired by frithalouise  and her adorable sweater dress, see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218058.0

I was shopping for a men's sweater long enough to make into a dress, when I happened upon this lambswool XL with Scotland on the front and said "Eureka!" Not quite long enough for a dress, I settled for a tunic and I think it turned out alright! Thanks for the tutorial, frithalouise!

Turned out really really well. I love the sweater- the colors and design and such. Looks great on you too.
