A four day sweater?! How is it even possible?
Marie of Olive Knits has designed another sweater that can be knit in just four days. Yes, you read that right, four days! (More days are given for bigger sizes) While many of us will take our time and knit it a little more slowly, this will still be the quickest garment you've ever knit. It's knitted top down, in the round, and all in one piece for a knit that you may even call easy peasy!
We're making ours in the scrumptiously soft Lux Adorna DK. This 100% cashmere yarn is exquisitely soft, warm, and lightweight. You'll probably never want to take it off. The smooth ply of the yarn shows off the "bee" stitch perfectly.
If 100% Cashmere is out of your budget or just isn't your forte, we have many more fiber options for you to knit a Beekeeper Cardigan.
Kelbourne Woolens Scout - A 100% wool DK weight yarn with excellent stitch definition.
Berroco Ultra Wool Dk - This 100% superwash wool is the perfect choice if you're knitting a gift that needs to be easy care.
Erika Knight Studio Linen - This recycled linen & viscose blend is a lightweight, drapey alternative for those who aren’t fans of animal fibers.
Classic Elite Yarns Gigi- Cotton, silk, and stretch polyester. This is a great wool-free option with great stitch definition and memory.
Sizes: 32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 44, 48, 52)“ Bust
3-4 inches positive ease included for a comfortable fit (THIS MEANS THE EASE IS ALREADY FIGURED INTO THE MEASUREMENT OF THE FINISHED FIT. KNIT YOUR OWN BUST SIZE AND THE FIT WILL ALREADY BE INCLUDED.)
Yardage: 950 (1010, 1100, 1200, 1296, 1455, 1630, 1850) yards
