New sweater design

Posted on June 21, 2010 by knittingpatterns4you | 0 Comments

I've had a bit of design ADD recently and am trying to streamline my process. Last week I got it in my head to start working on a new sweater project and went stash diving for the yarn I had in mind, a wonderful organic-looking Rowan Purelife undyed wool I bought in the winter. When I started swatching it up I remembered how great it is to knit with and was hooked right away! The body is all stockinette so I decided to knit it in the round in one piece, and I'm almost to the armhole decreases already . . . which doesn't sound like much until you realize that the gauge of this DK yarn is 6 sts/inch! I'm totally in love with the design can't wait to get to the interesting neckline and sleeve details. It will be a classic pullover that's light enough for indoor wear and simple enough to wear often, but also  interesting enough to make people wonder if you made it yourself. In other words, my favorite kind of knitwear!

I'm working on something fairly big behind the scenes, stay tuned for more details before the summer is over . . . it involves new patterns and kits for them . . . I'm so excited, I can't wait to show you!
