Please join us for our 2014 March Knit-A-Long
Ariosa Wrap Cardi by Cecily Glowik MacDonald
Due to the overwhelming response from our Facebook post, we have decided to use this as our March Knit-A-Long. We hope you will join us in knitting this versatile open cardigan.
The pattern is free on ravelry.
Molly will be the moderator of this knit-a-long. Phyllis and Arlene will also be knitting this cardi. The gauge is 16 stithes, so we have selected to use the Bergere Magic+ yarn beause we just love it. We will be ordering yarn on the 20th to have by the 28th.
The pattern is written for extra small (8), small (9), medium (10), large (11) and extra large (11). The number of skeins for each side is indicated in the (). Several people want to add some length to the sleeves. We estimate it will take 4 additional skeins if you want full length sleeves, or 2 skeins for half length sleeves.
We will meet on the 28th to knit our gauge swatch. We will work on this in the shop on Fridays from 4 - 6 in March.
The yarn required for each size are as follows:
- Extra Small : = 8 skeins
- Small : = 9 skeins
- Medium : = 10 skeins
- Large : = 11 skeins
- Extra Large : = 11 skeins
Remember you may need extra yarn if you want to change the size of the sleeves.
