Well there fellow Knitters.

She sent more photos last night and took measurements. What I see is a large rectangle with sleeves just as we suspected. She laid out flat and measured all the edges, took a photo of her schematic and sent it my way.

It appears to be a worsted weight yarn and the tags said it was a cotton, linen, acrylic & "other" blend. So, the yarn won't be tremendously expensive but there will be a lot of it. ;-)

She wants the same colors as well but the stripes don't have to be perfect. 3 of her best friends would like one too. None of them interested in knitting. No, Carole isn't a potential knitter. We're talking about the sibling here with no patience for anything. We mean Anything. My other sister Cyndi has patience for artistic works such as drawing, but, not textile-related hobbies. Carole did weave some wall hangings years ago but that was taxing for her as well. ;-)
She's a Hair Artist, a cosmetologist by trade and good at it. She says that she wishes people wouldn't keep thinking she can make them look like movie stars. Their hair can, but that's as far as she can help them.
When I figure all this out, I'll keep you informed as I go. Step One - search for some yarn.
Who knows, there might be some here in my house.....

Oh, I forgot, we don't use stash yarn when someone else is helping fund the project.

The shape of the cardigan that your sister requested reminds me of the Dahlia Cardigan.
http://www.ravelry.com/projects/chinda/dahlia-cardigan
This cardigan has an elaborate lace pattern on the back, but is basically a rectangle with sleeves. Your sister's sweater looks wider and longer than the Dahlia, but the pattern may offer insight as to how to make sleeve openings.

Chinda's cardigan is beautiful. I'm starting to get tempted to make one of these for myself.

Back to my original assignment......

I'm also working on a bookmarker in linen stitch using leftover sock yarn and can't seem to pay attention so I have to keep frogging. It's only 13 stitches for heaven's sake.

You could offer to teach her to knit.


I thought that too. People who don't knit don't realise the time it takes to knit a garment. And this cardi looks like a LONG time project.

True. However, I've been getting hair cuts for about 38 years and haven't had to pay for them.

She works at a big-buck salon where a hair cut can start at $50 and color? Over $100. If you saw my hair today you'd tell me to run over to her house right now. Humid day today.

A variation of this - a bit longer with wider "lapels"??

I love that one. Awesome find. I'd make one similar to the yellow and gray one for myself.

I have something similar as a wip but its knitted sideways. The pattern was in the Mar 2010 issue 28 of Let's Knit. Pm if you're interested in the pattern.
