Fireside Chat is an oversized, sleeveless sweater that will keep you warm and cozy, even on the coldest of nights.
Knit on size six needles with Great Adirondack Yarn Company's Sierra, this is the perfect sweater for cuddling in front of the fire with a cup of hot cider and a good book. This pattern uses simple ribbing and stockinette stitch and will look great in any variegated yarn.
18.5 stitches and 25 rows over 4 inches of stockinette stitch knit in the round
I started knitting in graduate school after watching a friend working furiously on a baby blanket for a nephew-to-be. With a four hour statistics class looming in front of me, creating something with some string and a couple of sticks was very appealing. So I bought a copy of Vogue Knitting, some bamboo needles, two balls of Filatura di Crosa Zara and I taught myself how to knit.
