Knitting

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 🙂

Papillon

BUTTERFLY Happy Easter

This Pattern is named Butterfly-Papillon from Marinja. It is possible to use different fingering weight yarn. My Butterfly Coloryarn is from Schoppel Zauberball Color “Der Lenz ist da” (you need 1 and a half skein nearly 762 yds/ 700 meter) , the ContrastColor is a yarn from Filcolana named Arwetta color Denim Blue (you need 2 skeins to 420 yards). Needeles, round size 40″” or larger/ 3,5 mm. At the first look it seems to be very difficult, but it is not so difficult as it looks like.

Cosy cowl

Ok, it’s not exactly the right time for a warm cowl… but I wanted to make one like this for long and I thought of this, when I found this yarn in my #tobeused collection lately!

I used Chiara (Lana Grossa) in a brioche stitch and enjoyed much working on it, as I found the stitch perfectly matching for this yarn!

Color of this year: rust

Rust color fits to the winter mood, so I often find myself knitting the next rust model. But this winter I could not even consider another color!


It is again a fully improvised pattern, using a combination of kidseta yarn, 70% Kid Mohair and 30% silk from Birgit Freyer together with a 100% wool yarn that already waited for a long time to be used.
