Very funny, modulators :-|


April's challenge is inspired by two things: Earth Day and the tree sweater thread .

Your challenge is to make a sweater for a tree, AND attach it to a branch of the tree all incognito and stuff. (take a picture if you can)


A tree sweater pattern is here , but if you want to jut go for it without a pattern that's cool too. I'm thinking a T shaped garter stitch sweater woul dwork fine, as long as the bottom part of your "T" goes cits the circumference of the tree and the across part of the "T" (the top part) fits around the branch.

Pick a tree that is kind of spindly and still in the growing phase, maybe freshly planted.... this isn't a project for a great sequoia.

nteresting flickr picture of tree sweater overload

Happy knitting! xxx

If you use acrylic make sure the sweater has a lot of ease so moisture won't get trapped against the tree. Need to give the tree some "growing room"

I'm in too!
I've been eyeing this since the first KAL post - where I discovered that this phenomenon started in my own city!

I do believe the original tree sweater was made from acrylic, too. So I think that's a fine choice!

Give the little ones sweaters, it's still cold out (at least in Seattle)!
