I was given 6 balls (a total of 360 yards) of Tahki Taos for my birthday a few months ago.  It's super bulky, and I looked through my knitting books to see potential projects for this yarn.  I decided that I had just about enough to do the Carie Cropped Cardigan in Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel. 

So I cast on and knit!  And knit...  and knit...  and knit...  By the time I bound off, I had a full length sweater jacket.  I did some lace in the back to add shaping and match the bell sleeves.  I still have no idea how 360 yards could go this far.







For those of you interested in making the original pattern but don't have the book, this pattern is free on the DIY network website!

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

Beautiful work!

I love this pattern and about to knit this cardigan next but
I want to use Lion brand Thick & Quick which is
smaller than their yarn (magnum).  Do you think
if I make 1 size bigger and  it's going be fine?
