Project

Diagonal Sweater

What are you most proud of? All of it. This is the most complicated -- in terms of thought, not knitting -- design I've ever done. I've had to learn a whole new way to think about knitting to produce it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Believe that it's easier then they think.

You Can Make This

  • 1
  • 300 yards bulky-weight yarn US 8/5mm 36" circular needle
  • used to knit back and forth Stitch markers Darning needle

Q&A with RebeccaZknits

desertros662554 asked:
I am amazed that you designed this sweater... I love to knit, and would like to get the pattern...loved the colors too.
RebeccaZknits answered:
Thank you. I was growing overwhelmed, so decided to take a break. I've just finished a new design (it will be in a book, can't post it here until the book's published.) Then, refreshed from the break, I'll dive back in to this. I do want to get the pattern down; but it's a challenge because you've really got to finish a sweater to see if a technique works; and that's a whole lot of knitting to test small changes.
