In little more than two weeks, we’ll joyfully celebrate the advent of Spring, the return of sunlight and blooming nature. So for this Round Up we selected light cardigans, jumpers and accessories that will perfectly suit those warmer months of the mid-season.
A bouncy yarn – like the Hedgehog Fibers Merino DK – would gives a better definition to to the bubble stitch, but if you prefer keep it simple by using more subdued colours, John Arbon – Knits by Numbers would also be a good match.
Flyway Twist is a beautiful, eye catching shawl by Veera Välimäki published in Interpretations: Volume 4. The simple combination of contrasting colourwork, with garter stitch and small brioche section, gives a great visual impact to this piece. The pattern asks for fingering weight and with the numerous 4ply yarns we’ve got currently on offer, it shouldn’t be too much trouble to find the perfect colours match for that project.
Captain Rex by Natela Astakhova has being going around Instagram for a little while now, and we’re so pleased the pattern has been finally released! Although the stranded yoke gives a real winter feel to that jumper, it calls for 4ply yarn, and so would be quite light weight and pleasant to wear during the mid-season. If you’ve got a Star Wars fan in your life – there’s always one – this would also be a great present to offer.
We’ll conclude this round up with this lovely childrens jumper; Kjegasen by Yvonne B. Thorsen. Kjegasen is another one-piece design, knitted in the round from top to bottom and with its simple stranded motifs, it can easily be tackled by knitters of every level. For this project we would suggest you to use Ulysse by De Rerum Natura.
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
