I’m so excited about my latest Stephen West project “REIS”, which means trip or travel in Dutch.
As soon as this pattern was released months ago I couldn’t stop myself going back to it, over and over again.
I thought I would probably enjoy it as much as I did my Enchanted Mesa.
And yes, I confirm, all I had was great fun!
The project is RAVELLED here with additional information.
I love playing around with yarn and color. I used a total of 18 different yarns! The sweater is supposed to be worked in DK. I didn’t have enough of that so I used fingering and sock weight yarns held together and played around with the combinations.
When so many different colors are involved in one project, I always find it challenging to find a right balance between keeping the colors interesting enough without overdoing it.
I just followed my intuition as I went along and hoped it would all come together in the end.
For the body I mainly used blues and pinks in all varieties and for the sleeves I mainly used grey and blues. I added small spots of yellow & green in order to break the other colors.
