Denver, Colorado...






Can I post knitting projects to BurdaStyle? How about sweaters that I’m suuuper proud of? This behemoth took me months. It wasn’t hard – no shaping and easy cables – just a lot of knitting.

I used the pattern Kaide by Norah Gaughan and used Berocco Vintage Chunky instead of the recommended Peruvia Quick. My version has more drape than I think was intended. I still love it.

I’ll post pants next! I promise.

Material Notes

12 balls of Berocco Vintage Chunky, size 8 needles for ribbing, size 10 needles for body.

    P.S. Do you know about ravelry.com? You can post your knitted projects there also.

    Exquisitely done! Isn’t there a great satisfaction of completion and wrapping oneself up in the project? Cross-crafting (knitting, sewing, etc.) helps exercise all creative muscles. I always have a project on my needles and a project on my sewing table. I say “Knit on” and will echo another’s cry: “Post away!”

      Oh good! I’m the same way. I like the term “cross-crafting.” And yes, I’m obsessed with Ravelry. I should post more in the forums…

    BEAUTIFUL! I’m a knitter too, and your work is soooo lovely! You are totally right to be proud of this finished project, and to share it with us so we can ooh and aah over it. :-) Well done!

    Amazing, that looks like alotta knitting! My mom once made me a dress with cables and fair isle bands, it took her a year but it was worth it for her to see my smile, also if you’re looking for primarily knitting websites you should check out ravelry if you havn’t heard of it plus knitting should defintely be posted here. So many sewers knit!

    Love it! I wish I had the determination to stick out big projects like that… looks guilty and eyes the pile of half finished sweaters :S

    I love it too! Looks super cosy, and complicated. I definitely think you can post knitware here. If you ask me anyway :-) Love the pictures too, such a perfect setting, rainbow and all!

    You should be proud! It looks so great on you. All that yarn and effort paid off – definitely. I’m not sure either if Burda is a knitting project site – but Craftsy is. Check it out if you haven’t already. It’s like Burda but for knitting and all other kinds of DIY stuff. http://www.craftsy.com/
