Most other competitions are individual achievements,
but the Olympic Games is something that belongs to everybody.

[Scott Hamilton]

The Winter Olympics fascinate me on several levels even though sports aren’t a particular interest of mine. One level includes ski sweaters. I knit several Dale of Norway (the company who designs ski team sweaters) ski sweater patterns over the years then, during one Winter Olympics, I knit a design of my own—the sweater in the photo (closeup in the new masthead).

This seamless sweater starts with a yoke that also forms the sleeves. There is a buttoned placket and narrow, stand up collar. I picked up the body stitches between the sleeves of the yoke, and knit down to the lower edge. The bottom is finished with a hem that contains a draw string. The yarn is a DK weight wool/mohair blend.
