Below is my pattern modification for the popular Calorimetry pattern found here.
Materials: two contrasting colors wool, doubled up. US 10 needles CO 80 sts. Cut short rows in half. I worked 7 rows instead of the 15 specified. That's it? That's it! I knitted several of these for last-minute Christmas gifts. Each takes about an hour from CO to BO. Really, an hour.
