As a Belgian I was so pleased and proud to be able to testknit this beauty for a Belgian designer.
Please prove me wrong, but I always get the feeling that the Belgian knitting scene is rather small when it comes to designers and high-end yarn brands and I regret that.
I envy some of you guys who seem to be living in knitting paradises like the UK, States, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and closer to home Germany and France.
But okay, we might not have many designers but Anne from Alfaknits is just a wonderful designer. She’s a graphic designer and that shows in her designs.
Thanks Anne so much for having me as a tester!
The pattern will be released very soon, around October 15! Don’t miss it.
I used Drops Baby Alpaca & Silk. It’s a Norwegian brand but I ordered it in Belgium.
See, I’m trying hard to go Belgian but it’s difficult to go all the way when you live in a small country.
Another thing I like about Anne’s designs are their versatility. It’s my favorite kind of knitting because it keeps my interest going.
I decided to add striping in the back. You can take a look at my Ravelry project page for more pictures but please also take a look at other people’s project just to see how different and great they all became.
