“Yes, Virginia, it really is yet another Calorimetry.”

I’ve made a bushel and a peck of these. Well, not quite. But if you click on the thumbnail gallery at the end of this post you’ll see almost all of them. This one is knitted in Big Mexiko Color by Schoeller-Stahl. It’s a self-patterning wool worsted weight. I had my doubts about my choice of this yarn because of the short row shaping and how it might interact with the dye pattern. But I am quite pleased with the result. The vintage button works well too.

Calorimetry is a free pattern available at Knitty’s Winter, 2006 edition (also via a Ravelry link). It’s designed by Kathryn Schoendorf. So far, it’s been knitted and posted on the project pages of 14696 Ravelers. Quite remarkable popularity, Kathryn!

Oops…another Calorimetry

Calorimetry is a really addictive quick knit. I’ve made so many now that it’s getting a bit embarrassing. I should probably quit posting them, but every one comes out different and cute in a new way. You can find this Knitty free pattern here. Kathryn Schoendorf, Calorimetry’s designer, deserves to be recognized in a knitter’s “hit parade” for this gem of a pattern. It’s been knit and posted 14,448 times on Ravelry. It’s waiting in 7092 queues as of this writing.

Here’s what Calorimetry looks like laid out flat:

Here’s a glimpse of the B.C. (before Calorimetry) time when the yarn was just a ball of Plymouth Yarns Boku:
