I will blog about the process of making this sweater soon, but for now I only have the energy to post the pattern to download!

Download the free Obama-rama pattern!

Update: for the 2012 election, I’ve turned this into a cardigan!

    This is absolutely the best.
    I don’t knit or crochet, but if you ever decide to start taking orders, or know someone that would be willing to make…..I will pay.
    Really great piece of work.
