the summer sweater knit along is only one week away! do you know what you're going to knit yet? are you still on the hunt? well i've got a suggestion for you :) i recently finished a test knit from isabell. also known as lilau on ravelry.
this is her second sweater in her beach series. called driftwood.
and i love it.
i knit this with cascade 220. it's my go-to yarn of choice. i love the selection of colours.... and the heathers? yah. i like them lots.
i absolutely love this sweater. i knit mine to be a little bit more of a closer fit... loove the contiguous-set-in-sleeves. this is the first time i've tried this method. :)
and as it's knit up in a worsted weight, it knits up so fast! the placket neck gives it a casual look, but it's flattering as well. and ummm i'm starting to have a big crush on buttons.
this pattern is very clearly written, and did i mention fast?
i think this sweater is super flattering on any woman. and i totally recommend it.
i love isabell's style in her design. i've already got another one of her sweaters in my que.. you've heard of paulie? it's a pretty popular one. can't wait to knit that! and really all of her designs are awesome. be sure to check them out here.
interested in knitting driftwood? you can find the pattern here.
last year i knit caramel. and i still wear it lots! check out my ravelry page for deets on that one. :)
as for my project for the kal? well i'm gonna be sneaky just a bit longer... xoxo
so excited for this kal! what pattern have you chosen? do you have the yarn ready? wound? swatched? i'd love to hear about it! has driftwood made your que now?xo
