This is my third test knit this year and I confess feeling some relief not having another knitting deadline in front of me.
But this one was absolutely worth it!!
I didn’t hesitate a second when Suvi was calling out for testers to knit this beautiful pattern.
I love love love stripes!
I also love the construction of this pattern.
It’s an open cardigan worked from top down and it has an assymetric hem and a shawl collar in garter stitch (LOT’s of stitches …).
Suvi also made me discover a great yarn branch Eden Cottage Yarns.
I used their Bowland DK 100% wool.
It’s very soft and light.
Let’s wait and see how it will stand the wear and tear, but I think it will be fine.
I see great potential for this pattern. It perfectly stood the test.
Test? What test?
Well, my daughter immediately stole it from me as soon as she saw it finished!
I makes me believe very very strongly that success is guaranteed Suvi!
If you have a Ravelry account, more pictures can be seen here and perhaps you can add this to your favorites if you like my project. Thank you :-)
