This is a free pattern by Melissa Wehrle which you can get here.
Maybe this should be called Sesame Surprise. The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold, Chunky Al, and I purchased it for a Lavold pattern. Evidently I was the first one to knit it and when, a year after I purchased the yarn, I found out I was out by a huge amount because the yarn quantities are seriously misrepresented in the pattern, I had to figure out something else to do with it. One door closes and, ahem….
….Open Sesame. I had been wanting to make it for a long time and here was my chance.
The photos have done no favours to the colours. What looks like a washed out light blue here is actually a beautiful green-blue. In real life this looks much nicer.
Pattern Excellent pattern, enjoyable to knit, easy way to get into a bit of colour knitting.
Yarn Chunky Al by Elsebeth Lavold. I don’t think I’d want it against my skin, but for a chunky cardigan it is perfect. I’d certainly buy it again for similar projects.
Thoughts I’d like to try a long version of this. Can’t see why it wouldn’t be easy enough to make it maybe 12 inches or more longer.
