It's Here

The Christina pattern is now available as a free download.

You can find it on Ravelry, under Christina Sweater. Christina is knit up with worsted weight wool, (I used Cascade 220) and available in sizes 30"-50" bust.

At the risk of sounding like I am accepting an Oscar, there are a few people who made this possible for me.

My talented sister-in-law, Elizabeth who turned my email into something very, very pretty.

And Hilary, for reading and answering my panic emails, and giving me oodles of encouragement and support.



This is my first pattern, and has not been tested, or edited by anyone other than me. If you have questions, problems, or comments please let me know and I will do my best to help you.



Happy knitting!

OH my goodness!! I love your interpretation of the original sweater. And now a free pattern? Just in time for the Knitting Olympics... I wonder if I have yarn in stash to make this my Olympic project.

congratulations! I agree with hilary - this IS a big deal. I am in complete awe of anyone who can design and write up a pattern. Big-time impressed, as they say here in Alabama. Heading on over to rav now to download - this just looks so cute!
