Recognize this? Would anyone like to test knit a sweater for me? I need sizes 34, 36, 40 and larger. Large ladies, don't be shy - I'd like to work with you to make a nice silhouette. The sweater is made out of Madelinetosh Pashmina in Antique lace and some Koigu stash that I had sitting around, probably 50 yards of two colors. You could use any stash yarn in sock or fingering weight and no, I guess it wouldn't have to be pink. For the base color you do not have to use Tosh but a natual fiber with a nice drape would be preferred. It's a little bit of fair isle, a nice first project.
It's a top down knit, seamless, try it on as you go - my favorite!
The hat was quickly comandeered by Juniorette and is 20 inches around. I'd love to have it test knit in 18 and 16 inches. Also,the tulips will have extra little points like the sweater. Kit Kat must have been distracting me when I drew out the pattern. Please send an email to Casapinka2 (at) yahoo.com. if you are interested in test knitting. I usually do this via Ravelry or through friends but I thought it would be fun to put it out on the weblog and see if there were any takers or if you just read Casapinka for harrowing mathematical wit.
