Still winter ;-)

It always takes me too long to finish my projects of one season but leaving them unfinished can lead to forgotten projects, wich is even worse!

This pullover is based on three stitch patterns that fit best the yarns I used (Mia from Lana Grossa and a mix of two rest-yarns for the sleeves).

The front and back parts start with the “parasol” pattern (which is called “Bärentatzen” in German). For the sleeves – where I had to use a combination of two leftovers but it turned out better that way – I wanted to use a regular and ligth stitch pattern; I chose “flame chevron” (“Ajourgeflecht” in German). For the cowl I needed a lace stitch that forms stripes but does not snuffle together. I found that this vine lace pattern suited the most.

All these patterns can be found at The Walker Treasury Project , a wonderful basis for a self designed work of art 🙂
