This is a new KAL for anyone who would like to work a Knit Along (KAL) for Meg Swansen's Russian Prime Sweater. It was suggested in an email from Amy Detjen and others were interested so here we are!
The Russian Prime was designed by Meg Swansen and is found in her book, Meg Swansen's Knitting starting on page 36.
Quoting from the description on page 37:
This circular garment is constructed along the lines of a classic Norwegian dropped-shoulder sweater, with a few added details. "
Availablity of instructions as per Meg :
- The original Wool Gathering was #49 (Sept '93) (Out of Print)
- A VHS video was made with insert-instructions and charts. (Out of stock?)
- The book, Meg Swansen's Knitting, published by Interweave Press. Alert: IP has dumped the book and Schoolhouse Press may have the only remaining copies.
- A new DVD version of the video (with insert instructions and charts) (ETA by early March)
To join the KAL and be able to post to this blog, please send an email.
Looking forward to lively discussions, lots of photos and great sweaters!
