I'm all in for the "stash-ghan", but was wondering.....since this is a Year Of The Stash geared toward something seamless, I've got some yarn I'd LOVE to try and make a sweater from. Got any seamless, not too difficult sweater patterns to go along with the afghan idea?

I'm also planning on doing some shawls, facecloths, drawstring bags.....mainly stuff I intended to get done for this Christmas and ran out of time.

Anyway, if you could find an easy pattern for an adult seamless (or at the very least, one knit from the neck down that maybe would only have seaming on the sides and underneath the arms) sweater, I'd totally love to try that, too!

Hi miccisue!

I will have 2 separate threads going:

1) The official KnittingHelp January KAL...for which I chose to offer a 'seamless' blanket...either LOG CABIN style....or BLOCKS Intarsia Style.

2) 2009 Year of the Stash (which runs all year)

Well...since I am the Captain of the Stash Train...I thought that my particular seamless blanket should use STASH before buying new yarn for it. So I'm calling my particular blanket a Seamless Stashghan!

So to clarify any misunderstanding: the KAL will be for some sort of seamless blanket. In that January Knitting Help KAL we will be helping one another on seamless blankets specifically. With new yarn, or stash yarn. Some don't have enough stash for a blanket...so they might buy yarn that goes on sale after Christmas.

As for your question about an adult seamless sweater...there is a seamless, top-down raglan sweater that I've made 3 times with different yarns. The pattern is called "Something Red"...and I've included a link to the pattern for you. The designer is asking $5.50 for the pattern download.

This is the model sweater.


These are mine. I made my sleeves long on all three.

The yarn I'm buying is for other projects I have in mind... I THINK (ok, HOPE) i have enough in my stash for an afghan... I think i'm going to aim for a throw and see what happens from there.

I'm with you LilMom! I have some stash acrylic yarn, and I'm going to knit my Log Cabin as far as the supplies will take me. Not sure if I have enough to complete. If I don't, I'll get some acrylic on sale the next time there's a good coupon. But I should get a good running start with supplies on hand!

I'm totally going to stash-bust this year, and maybe participate in a knit-along down the road, depending on what you decide to do.

But, I did get a gift certificate from Elann for Christmas!

So I think getting some new yarn with that is allowed.
