Colorido - A Mystery KAL - Part 1



This Mystery KAL is part of a Knit for Tibet campaign we do in the Wool-Aid ravelry group to help to provide as much warm knitted items for the earthquake victims as possible.
"Knit for Tibet is an outreach effort of the Kyegu Relief Fund, established in response to the devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake that hit the eastern Tibetan town of Kyegu on April 14, 2010. The humanitarian need is ongoing and significant. Approximately 10,000 people were killed, 20,000 people are injured, and 100,000 people have been left homeless and destitute. More than 90% of the buildings were reduced to rubble. Many of the survivors have no family left."
Winters are harsh in Kyegu, and the people are facing desperate conditions. Many are currently living in lightweight tents. They are especially in need of vests, sweaters, and socks. The sizes most needed are for babies and teens. 
Please also check the Wool-Aid website for more info.

With the COLORIDO Mystery  KAL I hope to be able to help adding some more sweaters to the next shipment.
Here how it works:
I will post parts of the pattern on my blog every so often. If you have a questions please either post your questions on the Wool-Aid ravelry board, as a comment here or send an email to c.burkhard at gmail dot com.

COLORIDO is a top down raglan  sweater (no seeming) in a size 14 (34” finished circumference)
