The "Uber-sweater" Project

Imagine you were going to have to create the sweater to end all sweaters. A real guys' sweater, in a really big (super) bulky/chunky yarn, meeting the following criteria:

  • 100% natural fibre, preferably wool;
  • Tension of 2 or 3 stitches to inch;
  • Reasonably felt-free;
  • Earthy or dyed colours;

From the above, it's obviously going to be a heavy garment, that's part of the concept.
