This week learn to make a digital image into a knitting pattern to make your very own skeleton cardigan. The first video shows the image processing needed to make the pattern, and the second video shows you the stranded knitting method for switching colors. Combine those with the pattern PDF, and you’ve got yourself a sweater! I brought the skeleton cardigan with me to Maker Faire Bay Area 2008, and it was unfortunately lost with my suitcase on the return trip, but thankfully it still lives on, in video form here on CRAFT!
