The 3 gals I am teaching to knit needed a real project and I wanted them to learn shaping, picking up stitches, buttonholes, 3 needle bind off and seaming. So I designed a simple sweater that included all those features. I told them to get worsted weight yarn and I would design it to work with the yarn they got. They got some Caron Simply Soft at Wal-Mart. I had a skein myself so I was in business. It is very simple but a good learning tool and will be cute for the gals to give as a gift to someone. I want them to get hooked. ;) Here is how it turned out. http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/JoodieKadoodie/Sweaters/Cardiganinyellow.jpg

Then I made one for a boy in Wool-Ease at the same gauge.

I got the gals in my class started with swatches last week so they could figure out which needles they needed. They are all started on their sweaters now. :thumbsup: I'm looking forward to seeing how far they got when we get together on Thursday.

I'd love to have had you for a teacher, you've included most of the important basics. The sweaters are very cute.

I just love the golden colors of Fall! These sweaters remind me of the golden season just past! Sigh! I am in total denial that winter is upon us! I keep clinging to Fall!

Your work is alway great, as are these little sweaters! :muah:
