Baggy knitted jersey in autumn colours

Raewyn Alexander knitted this woollen jersey as a tribute to the Waikato valley in autumn. She describes the style as "painting with wool" - a variety of yarns that she found in bargain bins. The jersey has panels to give the illusion of tailoring and the shorter sleeve length is typical of the 1980s.
