Assana Cardigan

Assana Cardigan

7.00

Assana was the #realtimesweaterproject sweater! The knitting of my sample was documented from cast on to bind off – and even showed the quick wash and block. The videos captured a whopping 46 hours and 39 minutes of work. Granted, I wasn’t knitting every moment the camera was rolling, but I’d say that’s a pretty accurate account of sweater knitting on size US4 needles when short rows, long sleeves, and a lace neckband are thrown into the mix. In the end, Assana grew into a roomy little cardigan that will be a staple in my fall wardrobe.
