My latest project working through stash yarn:

This is called a Sontag, or Bosoms’ Friend. A historical pattern dating to 1860-ish (in the US – there’s a Danish version as well) and recently popularized by the show Outlander.

I thought it would make a nice light-ish thing to wear over my shoulders in malls and restaurants once it gets warm enough to want bare arms. I’m also working on a second version in an even lighter weight fabric to see what that does.

This thick version could be quite snuggly, though since it’s 100% wool, my Princess skin can’t really handle much time next to it.
