Introduction: Hot Rod Sweater With Flames

Picture of Hot Rod Sweater With Flames

I used Lion's Brand Wool-Ease and Vanna's Choice yarn for this sweater. It was my second and the largest project I've attempted so far involving intarsia knitting. I'm still not sure if I want to do more projects involving intarsia! ;-) (we'll see how the next one goes!)

My husband saw the pattern in one of my books - Stitch 'N Bitch Nation, and decided he HAD to have it. I finished it last weekend, and he's already worn it once to work, and got lots of great comments on it.

Now, on to the next project! Happy Knitting!

Did you know that you twist your stitches? It's distorting the fabric and making it lean to the left.

The pattern is from a book called 'Stitch 'N Bitch Nation'. It's a pattern called 'Jesse's Flames'. Stitch 'N Bitch has also just put out a great book for guys called 'Son of Stitch 'N Bitch' - I've got that one as well, and I think my husband's next sweater is going to come out of it. :-)
