Glee-Inspired Knitting: Carousel Sweater

I'm going to admit something to you.  I love Glee.  I don't know if it's the music, the endearing characters... no, I do know.  It's the snark.  I love the witty comebacks and snide comments that just aren't in a lot of TV shows.  

Anyway, W and I make it a point to watch Glee on Hulu every week.  Alone.  In a locked room.  Where we know people won't judge us.

And during this week's episode, "Comeback," I laughed so much at the clothing drama.  I've always teased Rachel Berry, and seeing all of the girls in those carousel sweaters just made me laugh!

“I mean, my carousel horse sweater should make me look like an institutionalized toddler but no – I look hot and smart. I feel like Michelle Obama.”

So, I spent five minutes in Excel and made this.  It's a carousel sweater intarsia chart.  Feel free to either laugh at me, wonder why I'm not doing the mountain of homework I need to start, or thank me. 

For best results, plop it front and center in the middle of simple top-down raglan pullover.  If you hurry, maybe you can finish it before the joke is lost on anyone. 

The pattern is available as a free Ravelry Download, if you don't have a Ravelry account, click here to download the chart: download now


  1. Very cool and of the moment.

  2. That is funny! I've never watched the show but it sounds hilarious. Very nice of you to come up with a graph.

  3. I am becoming a Gleek. THey just go so darn far on that show...and they know how far they can go..>I love it

  4. I'm a total Gleek so I love this idea! I wonder if we could pull it off!?

    Love your blog. x

  5. This is awesome! do you have a good recommendation on how i could double the size?

  6. @Anonymous: You can double the size by changing the needles and yarn that you use. Also, you could take each cell and quadruple it. So, each square is now four squares... does that make sense?


Hey, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! :) I really appreciate it!
