For this year's Ravelympics, I decided to challenge myself to knit the sample and write the pattern for one of my upcoming Knit Picks patterns. And I did it! Mostly while watching women's curling (yeah Sweden!). So here is my project for both the Designer Original Dance and the Sweaterboard Cross:
Pattern: Kimono Wrap Cardigan
Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Silk, 10 skeins of Merryweather and 2 of Cranberry
Needles: US 7 circs
Start to Finish: February 12-28, 2009
This sweater is knit in pieces and has belled sleeves and a linen stitch sash. The pattern needs a few finishing touches, but the calculations are done as well as all the explanations. According to the official Ravelympics guidelines for my events, I've won gold!
And now I need to go take a nap.
