Thanks to NaKniSweMo, I have another design ready for your knitting pleasure:
Ready to go play!
Back of sweater is 1-1/2" lower than front ... and the cables at the top of the hood match!
My Favorite Sweatshirt and Mitts design is a fun knit ... and a comfy sweater, to boot! The sweater is knit by first making a cable panel, turning it on its side, knitting in the round and adding a sqaured-neckline, a hood and 3/4 sleeves (knit from the armhole down to mid-arm. Because so much of the sweater is knit in the round, there is VERY little finishing work (I'm lazy, what can I say?). I made a pair of matching fingerless mitts -- which are fun to knit and fun to wear!
I've sized this design for XS - 5X, so you can make one for all the ladies you know! You can purchase this design or others of mine from my Ravelry Store . Check 'em out and let me know what you think! And if you have any suggestions for designs you'd like me to do, please let me know!
A good friend sent me a link to this VERY cool project organized by Red Heart and the Winter Special Olympics -- scarves for all the participants! I know this is a VERY hectic time of year for us knitters ... we're busy finishing gift-knitting for family and friends. I know this is a VERY hectic time of year for us designers ... we're busy finishing commissioned designs and drafting new submissions and generally up to our ears in work.
But a scarf doesn't take that long ... and if each one of us makes just one ... that will be many more than they would have had! So won't you take a minute ... look up your state and the requirements ... and make a scarf for one of the athletes, families or volunteers who annually make the Special Olympics a reality?
Please let me know if you decide to participate ... and what state you're in. If you'll send me a picture of the finished scarf (or SCARVES!), I'll be happy to post 'em on here ... THANK YOU for your help in this project of love and perseverance!
