Anyone interested in test knitting a Cozy in Cables sweater pattern for the big kids in one of three sizes, 32", 36", 40"?
This is how it will work -
I supply: the pattern, support, communication, and corrections as they're found.
- Yarn - The 32" size takes about 600 yards of bulky (3 stitches/inch) yarn. I haven't knit the larger sizes so you get to tell me the yardage required.
- Time - Ideally the sweater should be done by Monday. (That's a joke.)
I'd like to get the sweaters knit by January 15 so we can share the pattern with the rest of the list.
- Knitting skill - The pattern is easy, no sew, drop sleeves, boat neck. You do need to have enough knitting insight to recognize when there's a typo or other problem.
- Feedback - I need to know every problem you encounter so I can edit and correct the pattern for the CIC_Knit List.
Our reward? A pattern the list can use to create easy, attractive, warm sweaters for the CIC_Knit List big kids.
Interested? e-mail Me or leave a blog comment with questions and/or to sign up. I will let you know where the pattern is and add you to my distribution list of test knitters.
Not sure you can get done in time? Give it a try. Worst that can happen is you'll have a big kid sweater to send to CIC for the challenge after the pattern is published.
