This is the sweater, the sweater like no other

I fell in love with this sweater and took on the challenge of knitting it. For some copyright mystery, the actual of the pattern that this sweater is derived from will not be shared by the first knitter of this sweater. The result are notes that can be collected from the other 179 people who knitted this sweater.

Knitting can be such a great essential skills builder, any sweater requires the nine essential skills that can develop as you challenge yourself with complexity in knitting:

  1. Reading
  2. Document Use
  3. Numeracy
  4. Writing
  5. Oral Communication
  6. Working With Others
  7. Thinking
  8. Digital Technology
  9. Continuous Learning
Knitting this sweater also required perseverance, determination, dedication, detachment, and love of the challenge and the yarn I chose. For more notes on the project check out the Ravelry page.
