So we bring you . . . the "Options" Sweater Knit Along!
You also have a size option - but we're talking about more than a simple Small, Medium or Large. The sweater was designed by Amy Herzog (not me, another Amy), the author of Knit To Fit and Knit Wear Love. One of Amy's fit tenets is that a good sweater fits at the shoulders. The knitter's shoulder measurement is as important here as is the bust measurement. So in order to make this easy, Amy has created this pattern in twelve sizes to make it simpler to pinpoint the optimal fit.

For the solid color sweater, Amy chose Flint (105), a subtle gray with a hint a blue, and throughout the KAL Amy will be knitting her own version in Grit (109), a stylish olive green. For the cardigan, Amy chose Dust (110) as the main color with contrasts of Volcano (107) and Enamel (013).

So where are the completed project photos? This is not a mystery KAL, after all! You are welcome to take a peek at the complete project photos . . . except that the photography isn't done yet. Both sweaters are in England being photographed with Rowan's usual style, and we will post them on the project page as soon as they are available. BUT, we suspect that this KAL will be ridiculously popular and Rowan will run out of some colors of the Pure Wool DK. We wanted to get this project to you as early as possible so that you can order your yarn ASAP!
The KAL kicks off on Monday, October 19th!
One thing that is not an option - the yarn is 20% off!
Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
