December Challenge?

Anyone up for a KAL for the December sweater from "Knitters Almanac"?

I don't know about anyone else, but I sure could use a quick project for a holiday present. I'm thinking, since it's bulky, of using Lamb's Pride Bulky -- the pattern calls for 2 1/2 st. per inch, so I'd probably be knitting on size 11 needles.

Any takers?

  • Oooo I really want to make one for my brother, but it's gotta be superwash since he would destroy a real wool sweater. Any ideas on yarn? Maybe I could double cascade superwash...

  • I need a copy of Knitter's Almanac. Anyone have an extra? I prefer a used copy.

  • I think doubling would be fine -- anything to get between 21/2 and 3 per inch. I started mine in Chianti (kind of a reddish purple) and I think I might to a knitted hem in a lighter weight pink. Progress photos soon!

  • I really would like to do this sweater but am having a hard time figuring out how much yarn to purchase and how to make the pattern smaller. I was thinking more like a 38" which give me room for a shirt under if needed. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
