  • Fabulous! Love it all! I’ll be picking up at my LYS shortly.

  • who doesn’t love a quick and super fun knit? Congrats, Jen! That cardigan goes straight to the queue!

  • So cute. I thought this might be a solution for the Rowan Ribbon Twist in my stash (hoarder) bins but it is super bulky. I must have some bulky yarn somewhere….

    • On Ravelry, I think it says super bulky.

      • Okay, I am in. Went through the stash/hoard and found 8 skeins of Noro Furisode.

        • These do look like great beginner projects.

  • I bought the PDF right away but couldn’t get it to download –

    • Check your email?

    • Woohoo So excited to see my faves: Big yarn, Big needles!!! That cardigan is calling me;) Thx for these designs, Jen Geigley is my new favorite designer!

  • Dreamy cardigan! Great colors!

  • After reading the downloaded book, I want to make Every. Single. Thing. Including the pie. You’ve done it again!

  • Oh this is so exciting! So many bright and fun knits will be popping up in no time.
    Hooray, I have a Stripey-Scrappy Hat ready to go.

  • Woot. Lots of bulky yarn in my stash. Off to buy and thank you for introducing me to a new, rad designer!! Yippie!!!

  • This field guide speaks to me on so many levels! I can’t wait to get mine!

  • Hooray! My favorite big yarn, big needles projects! Can’t wait to get the book and start digging through the stash. There’s pie too? Double Hooray!

  • How much ease are we talking about for the Main Squeeze, please? It’s just yummy.

    • Hi Shearwater,

      The finished measurements for all 11 sizes are on the Ravelry page here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/main-squeeze-cardigan

      You’ll see that positive ease of up to 2 inches or so is implied in the difference between bust size and finished measurements, but ease is up to the knitter on this cardigan without shaping.

      I usually want 3 or 4 inches of ease for a garment like this myself, so will probably go up a size or two from my actual bust measurement, and then just adjust sleeve and body lengths as needed.

  • Delighhtful. As always. I love your field guides.

  • These look fun, quick, and easy! I am especially intrigued by the sweater, though I see that it is knit flat. I have only sewed up short seams before, as, like many knitters, I prefer knitting to sewing. It does seem like a good practice garment for seaming, however!

    • Hi Laura,

      The body of the cardigan is knit in one piece up to the armholes, and the sleeves are knit in the round. So you will have to practice those long seams on another garment!

  • Field guide looks great! And what a fun name, Big Joy 😀

  • These are all so cute! But, man, I feel like I’m rowing a boat or something when I knit with needles that big!
