Roxana knit the sample pictured above with a self striping yarn, though she says the pattern is good for oddball knitting. And of course you can do a solid color if you like. She says that any questions about the pattern can be sent to Roxana.Bartlett@gmail.com, and please put "sweater" in the title so that she knows it's not spam.
When you finish a sweater for the refugee project (using this pattern or another one), please snap a photo and send it to me at email@example.com so I can post it here and share it with the group. Please feel free to send me photos of hats too! Put "Boulder community knitting" in the title so I know it's not spam.
Sending you all good vibes to stay healthy and safe. I'm looking forward to the time when we can all meet again in person. Until then, please use this online space as a way to connect.
