I'm going to be using Sublime Merino Silk Aran in the color Fennel. I
think the smoothness of this yarn will show the detail really well.There's
no errata for this pattern, so we're all set to go!
Please post all of your comments about this this knit-along as a reply to this post so we have all of the comments in one place. Thanks!
Yeehah! I'm IN. I've missed you all since the Minimalist KAL. I'm thinking of using Berroco Love It...but not enough in one color if pattern is correct on quantities. Will consider 2 colors, 3/4 sleeves.
Woo Hoo, the Caftan! I'm in and will pick a yarn this weekend, get the pattern and hopefully swatch! (Nice to see you again Artful Soul.)
This is my first KAL. It is so pretty I have got to give it a try! I'm going to use a two ply mohair yarn. It's very soft and shiny.
Hurray! I love this one! I will be on a very busy vacation for the next two weeks but plan on hitting the needles as soon as I return. see you all soon.
This will be my first KAL and I'm looking forward to it! Have ordered the yarn; it's Andean Silk in Whisker. Haven't used it before, so hope it knits up well. The pattern is beautiful!
I'm glad so many want to do the Caftan. I think I'll pass on this one, it's not really my style.
I'll check out the next KAL
Happy knitting to all.
Hi everyone! I forgot to vote on my favorite - yet my favorite is the one chosen. I look forward to doing this one. I may want to adapt this somehow to my shorter waist, but I am sooo looking forward to it...
I love this pattern even though I voted for a different one. However, I think I will pass on this KAL since all the yarns I have checked out will cost about $100.00 and I have a few more must do projects to complete/start for others. I will follow along with the KAL just to see how others are doing. Happy knitting all!
Bummer, I was hoping for one of the others. Were we supposed to be able to vote?
I was so confident this design would win I bought pink Ultra Silk right after I voted for the Caftan and it arrived already! It was a birthday gift to myself. Can't wait to get started.
This Caftan is sooo pretty on the model. I hope it looks good on heavier people since I must, at the very least, be double her weight.
hI! it's my first time in a KAL any idea about the yarn ...living in Italy I don't think I'll find the same yarn...the project is fantastic...
