CaMaRose, Snefnug, Basic Sweater, Pattern Review, Completed Project

Completed Project – Kate’s Basic Baby Sweater

As soon as I came across Snefnug I knew it was going to be pretty special. I have come across similar blends by other companies but have always been disappointed that they always has an element of nylon involved, normally in the chainette core. So I was really excited to find this blend by CaMaRose which is all natural, using cotton at the chainette core.

I decided to knit a little sample for the shop straight away and found that Trine, the founder of CaMaRose has a lovely collection of patterns designed specifically for Snefnug.

The Basic Sweater looked to be the perfect quick knit which I knew would look adorable in the shop. The pattern instructions are pretty basic and it wasn’t the most straight forward pattern to follow. I probably wouldn’t recommend it for a beginner knitter but if you’ve knitted a few things before it shouldn’t be too hard to decipher. 

The yarn itself was everything I’d hoped. Living up to its name – Snefnug mean snowflake in Danish – it is light, airy and soft. Using a 6.00 mm needle kept the fabric light but I can imagine it would look really good at a tighter gauge too and would be even fluffier. At this looser gauge the jumper knitted up really quickly. 

CaMaRose’s yarns have a palette like no other. From light and bright to soft and subtle they are all stylish and highly wearable colours. I already have plans for another jumper for me. I’m thinking of the Sunday Sweater by Petite Knit or the Air Cardigan by Miriam Jarrs.
