Knit Sweater For ... Erm...

...next year? Yes, I did it again: making something for summer when it's basically almost winter. I so love this sweater though! I'm planning to sew up some Renfrews to wear underneath. I've already shown you the pattern I used, from the 1980 July edition of Ariadne.



I can't really say how long it took me in hours. I just know I started knitting in May or something. It's not that the pattern is difficult, it's just that I tend to get bored halfway. The consequence being the I now have a sweater with lots of holes and knit in cotton to keep me warm this winter. I'd better get started on those longsleeves :)



In short, the pattern goes like this:

1: Number of stitches must be divisible by 18 + 2 stitches on each side
2: Knit 4 rows in st st
3, 5 & 7: sl 1, k2tog 3x, *yo k1 (6x) k2tog (6x)* rep. between *, end with yo k1 (x6), k2tog (3x), k1
4 & 6: Purl
8-12: Knit

That's it! Could be nice for a slouchy beret, too. I'll stick to socks and mittens for a while now, I don't think I'll be needing a thick sweater next summer. What's on you're needles? Do you knit as I do, or do you knit one season ahead?

  3. Thats so cute, I love the pattern and in the dark colour its really striking, I say long sleeved top underneath and a big scarf or cowl and it would be totally transferable to winter!
