13 Sweaters in 2013: Wrap Up

One last time, here are all the sweaters and cardigans for 13 Sweaters in 2013! This just goes to show that knitting a sweater doesn’t necessarily have to take a long time. The fastest took just seven days!

In order…

  1. Aidez by Cirilia Rose

  2. owls by Kate Davies

  3. Antler Cardigan by tincanknits

  4. Splash of Blue by Suvi Simola

  5. Paulie by Isabell Kraemer

  6. Ophicleide Cardigan by Kamicha

  7. pick, pick, pick it up! by Meghan Munro

  8. Full Circle Cardigan by Triona Murphy

  9. Ginny’s Cardigan by Mari Chiba

  10. Ginny’s Cardigan again!

  11. Central Park Hoodie by Heather Lodinsky

  12. Aleph by Hannah Cuviello

  13. White Chocolate from Garnstudio

And here’s a few tips for reducing the time from cast-on to cast-off:

  • Pick a project and/or yarn you’re really excited about. This will make the project fly off the needles! If you’re just lukewarm about it, it’s not worth it.

  • Project monogamy. It’s really hard sometimes but it’s amazing how quickly you can finish a garment if that’s the only thing you’re working on.

  • If mistakes should appear, pick your battles. If it’s going to bother you in the finished garment, rip out immediately! Waiting doesn’t make the problem go away. If it doesn’t – call it a design feature and zoom on!

  • If all else fails – big yarn & big needles. A bulky sweater doesn’t get worn often but it’s pretty darn quick to knit.
